What's the penalty on a 401(k) hardship withdrawal?

If you took the hardship withdrawal before you turned 59 1/2, you'll pay a 10% early withdrawal penalty, with a few exceptions. Also, your distribution is included in your gross income.

Once you enter the distribution information from your 1099-R form, we'll help you check for any exceptions that could reduce the tax.
