Why did I receive a Form 1099-R?
TRF is required by federal law to provide a Form 1099-R to anyone who received money from the fund in 2013. This information is also provided to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
What should I do with the form?
You should use your Form 1099-R when completing your tax returns. If an accountant or other professional prepares your returns, you should provide this form or a copy of this form to your tax preparer. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) provides instructions for completing tax returns, and also offers information online at http://www.irs.gov/. You may wish to contact your tax advisor regarding questions related to completing your tax return.
Why did I receive more than one Form 1099-R from TRF?
If you received distributions in 2013 of more than one benefit type, then you will receive a Form 1099-R for each benefit type. The benefit type description is displayed in Box 7 of the Form 1099-R. This description will assist you in associating the amount reflected on each form with its proper benefit type.
What is included in Box 5 Employee Contributions (Non-taxable)?
Box 5 represents the non-taxable portion of your 2013 distributions.
Why are there blank boxes on my Form 1099-R?
The Form 1099-R was designed by the IRS to apply to many different types of organizations and types of payments. As a result, there are several boxes that do not specifically apply to members of TRF – those boxes are left blank.
