Box 16

There is no Box 16 on 2 1099Rs that I have received and two additional 1099Rs (from the same provider) have no amounts in box 16.

Box 16

Box 16 is the state amount of the distribution.  In most cases it is the same as Box 1 - gross distribution.   If there is an entry in Boxes 14 or 15 on your 1099-R, TurboTax will expect an amount in Box 16.

 

Enter the following in Box 16:

  • If Box 14 shows State Tax withheld, enter the amount in Box 1 (gross distribution);
  • If Box 14 is blank or zero no state tax was withheld leave Boxes 14, 15 and 16 blank.
