RE: STATE TAXES...I took early disbursement of a pension plan (Total distribution).
I have a 1099-R. Box 1 and 2a are the same. TurboTax is asking for "BASIS OF RETIREMENT INCOME" What is that? What should I enter? Box 4 on the 109-R says I paid Federal Tax when I cashed out of the pension, but I don't see that I paid any state tax (nothing in box 12). I lived in the same state at the time of contributing and the time I cashed it out.
My company spun out of another company. Pensions ceased with the new company. THere was hardly any money in it, so I cashed it out.
