Massachusetts 2013: Inherited IRA Rollover

When a person inherits an IRA from a spouse who died, the person can elect to roll over that IRA into another IRA. Usually that rollover is not taxable.

Certain Massachusetts customers, who rolled over an inherited IRA, may have filed an incorrect state tax return.

TurboTax has fixed this issue.

How to tell if you may be impacted

You may be affected if all of the following apply to you:

  • You filed your Massachusetts state tax return prior to March 13, 2014 AND
  • You inherited an IRA AND
  • You rolled over that IRA into another IRA account AND
  • Your federal return includes that IRA rollover amount on Form 1040 line 15a, IRA distributions (or Form 1040A, line 12a) AND
  • That amount is not included on your Form 1040, line 15b, Taxable amount (or Form 1040A, line 12b) AND
