For 2020 we had a Roth Distribution of $44,000. Our basis was $30,000. Age was less than 59 1/2 at time of distribution. Line 7 code is T, so no penalty. turbo tax shows no taxable income. That is wrong. How can we get Turbo Tax fixed.

Is this an inherited Roth?

 

Code T is used when

  • The participant has reached age 59½,

  • The participant died, or

  • The participant is disabled.

 

If none of those apply and the code T is incorrect then contact the financial institution that issued the 1099-R for a corrected 1099-R.  You cannot change it because the IRS receives a copy.

The Roth was  inherited.  My wife's first husband owned the ROth and died in 2005.  I think the code T is correct.  The Payer used the  Code T on  line 7 i for 2019 as well.   My issue is Turbo tax is showing no taxable income.  Can you help?

TurboTax is correct.   Roth IRA distributions are not taxable and there is no early distribution penalty for an inherited IRA.

Since my wife Amy had not reached the age of  59 /1 2 at the time of the Roth distribution in 2020, I believe the distribution in excess of the basis is taxable.  The Roth is considered a beneficiary Roth.

Thanks

Your age is immaterial.     There is never any penalty on an inherited IRA.
