How do I File a QDRO?

I have a qualified domestic relations order where I was awarded part of my ex-husband's pension in our divorce.  I have taxes deducted before I receive payment.  How do I file?

Greetings LBRABE

The exceptions to early withdrawals come later in the interview. After completing Deductions and Credits, select the Done with Deductions button. After several screens reviewing possible issues with your return you will come to the Penalty May Apply screen. Continue, you can enter the taxable amount of the distribution as "Alternate Payee Under QDRO" to escape the penalty.

I hope this Information was helpful to you, Thank you for choosing Turbo Tax and have a great day!

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
