Why did I get a 1099-R tax form?

Why did I get a 1099-R tax form?

I rolled over assets to an IRA. Will I pay tax on this?

IRS form 1099-R will be generated for any distribution from a retirement account. To know if your distribution is coded as a non-taxable direct rollover, look for the code “G” in box number 7. That will indicate a qualified rollover contribution into another plan, other than a Roth account.

You'll also receive form 5498 showing the off-setting contribution into the IRA. This form is for informational purposes only and typically gets mailed after April. Institutions will mail a copy directly to the IRS for you.
