OK, so previous mention of 2017 was a typo.
I'm not aware of any way to cause TurboTax to include any of this distribution on line 4b of 2018 Form 1040 if the details of the Form 1099-R are entered accurately, so it seems that the nonzero amount on line 4b is coming from a Form 1099-R that you entered other than this code G Form 1099-R that has $0 in box 2a, or you entered a nonzero amount into box 2a of TurboTax's 1099-R form for this code G From 1099-R. Although it shouldn't make any difference, make sure that you didn't leave box 2a blank on TurboTax's form (make sure that the $0 was entered) and make sure that you entered code G in only one of the two box 7 boxes on TurboTax's form. As far as I know, a code G in box 7 and $0 in box 2a invariably results in none of this Form 1099-R being included on Form 1040 line 4b.
Examine the Pension and Annuities section of TurboTax's Form 1099-R Summary.
Thanks for your help. I did find my errors, and TurboTax did not include roll over amount from 401K to IRA in AGI. Root of my problem was deferring my first RMD when I turned seventy and a half (2017) to next year (2018). This required me to take two RMD's in 2018, and pushed AGI in next Medicare bracket. The lesson is deferring the first RMD, now one must take it at seventy two and a half, may not be a good idea for everyone. So this was bitter / sweet in the end. Again thanks for taking the time and guiding me. Have a healthy and happy New Year.
