#Good news! The IRS has extended the tax deadline to April 18th! As long as you submit your federal return by midnight on 4/18/2018, you won't be considered a late filer for your federal return. Direct debit tax payments that are submitted with your federal return (or on the IRS website) by 4/18 are also considered timely filed ×

Why is there no taxable amount on my 1099-R?

This could happen for multiple reasons:

  • If payments made to you were subject to withholding of Social Security and Medicare taxes, they would be reported on a W-2 rather than the 1099-R.
  • Workers compensation and Department of Veterans Affairs payments are generally tax exempt and wouldn’t get reported on the 1099-R.
  • The payer might not have been required to calculate taxable income for you, or it didn’t have enough information to do so. Credit Karma Tax can help you determine the taxable amount with just a few questions.
