Instructions for PA-40 Schedule W-2S

Wage Statement Summary

WHAT’S NEW

The schedule was revised to divide the form into sections instead of parts to conform to a new department standard required as part of a computer system change. Two new segments of instructions have been added for “How to Sub- mit Form(s) W-2, 1099-R, 1099-MISC or Other Documents” and “When to Submit Form(s) 1099-R, 1099-MISC or Other Documents”. Column C in Section II was revised to request the Payer FEIN instead of the Payer Name.

If any other 1099-R code was entered in Column D, enter a zero in Column G (there is no PA-taxable com- pensation from these codes). If the distribution code in Col- umn D is a 7, or 7D, or 2D, 3D, or 4D and the payment type listed in Column B is K or L, these types of payments are not taxable as compensation, but are taxable as interest in- come to the extent there is income included in federal gross income. Although not taxable as compensation, they must be included to allow for reconciliation with amounts reported for federal income tax purposes. Refer to the PA Personal Income Tax Guide – Gross Compensation section for addi- tional information regarding 1099-R codes and their taxabil- ity.

If a payment from a 1099-MISC or from another document other than a 1099-R was entered, enter the amount from Column E.

WHEN TO SUBMIT FORM(S) 1099-R, 1099-MISC OR OTHER DOCUMENTS

Copies of Form 1099-R, Distributions from Pensions, Annu- ities, Retirement or Profit-Sharing Plans, IRAs, Insurance Contracts, etc., must be included with paper and e-filed PA- 40, Personal Income Tax Returns, regardless of whether the 1099-R includes PA income tax withheld or whether or not the distribution amount is taxable. For electronically filed re- turns, copies of the 1099-R are not required to be included if the 1099-R includes federal tax withheld. However, if the 1099-R does not include federal tax withheld, a copy of the 1099-R must be provided with the filing of the PA-40, Per- sonal Income Tax Return. In addition, any 1099-R that in- cludes PA income tax withheld must be provided to the department even if the form includes federal withholding. See “How to Submit Form(s) W-2, 1099-R, 1099-MISC or Other Documents” for additional information.

Copies of Form 1099-MISC, Miscellaneous Income, must also be included with paper and e-filed PA-40, Personal In- come Tax Returns, if the income is reported in Section II of PA-40 Schedule W-2S. Do not include Form 1099-MISC for income reported on PA-40 Schedules C, E or F unless the form includes PA income tax withheld. See “How to Submit Form(s) W-2, 1099-R, 1099-MISC or Other Documents” for additional information.

Copies of other documents supporting income reported as honorarium, executor/executrix fees, jury duty fees, direc- tor’s fees, damages for lost wages, etc. not reported on Form 1099-MISC must also be included with paper and e- filed PA-40, Personal Income Tax Returns, if the income is reported in Section II of PA-40 Schedule W-2S. See “How to Submit Form(s) W-2, 1099-R, 1099-MISC or Other Doc- uments” for additional information.

The following filing tips are provided to assist with the completion of PA-40 Schedule W-2S Sections I and II.

1099-R DISTRIBUTION CODE 2

A taxpayer with a distribution Code 2 on Form(s) 1099-R must determine if he/she received the distribution from an eligible employer-sponsored retirement or pension or retire- ment plan eligible for PA tax purposes. Additionally, the tax- payer must have been eligible by meeting the age or service

conditions of the plan. If these conditions are met, the tax- payer should input the same amount in Column F as was reported in Column E. Otherwise, the cost or adjusted basis of the plan must be included in Column F.

A taxpayer with distribution code 1 or 2 on Form(s) 1099-R from a retirement plan from the State Employees’ Retire- ment System, the Pennsylvania School Employees’ Retire- ment System, the Pennsylvania Municipal Employees’ Retirement System or the U.S. Civil Service Commission Retirement Disability Plan should input the same amount in Column F as was reported in Column E.

IRA CONVERSIONS

A taxpayer with a conversion of a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA (or vice versa) with distribution code 1 in Box 7 of the 1099-R may be eligible to report the amount as nontaxable income when a direct transfer from trustee to trustee occurs and/or the when the entire distribution from the original IRA account (including taxes withheld) is paid into the new IRA account within 60 days of the date of the distribution. In such cases, input the same amount in Column F as reported in Column E. If the distribution is not a direct transfer from trustee to trustee, or the entire distribution is not paid into the new IRA account as a result of the conversion of the original IRA account, the distribution must be reported as two separate distributions on PA Schedule W-2S. The dis- tributions will be reported on separate lines of Column E with the net amount converted into the new IRA (gross distribu- tion from Box 1 of the Form 1099-R less amounts not repaid into the new IRA account) being reported as the first distri- bution and amounts not repaid into the new IRA account re- ported as the second distribution. The amount reported in Column E for the first distribution will not be taxable (input the same amount in Column F as reported in Column E). The amount reported in Column E for the second distribution may be taxable since Column F will reflect the cost or ad- justed basis of the IRA.

DISTRIBUTIONS FROM ANNUITY OR

ENDOWMENT CONTRACTS AND CHARITABLE GIFT ANNUITIES

A taxpayer with distributions from an annuity purchased from a commercial insurance or mutual company, an endowment contract or a charitable gift annuity having a distribution code 7 or 7D in Box 7 of the 1099-R must record the distributions on PA Schedule W-2S and also report the amount of income taxable for federal income tax purposes as PA-taxable in- terest income. When recording the distribution on PA Sched- ule W-2S, input the same amount in Column F as reported in Column E. Report the federal taxable amount of any an- nuities or endowments on Line 11 of PA Schedule A. Report the federal taxable amount of any charitable gift annuities on Line 12 of PA Schedule A.

DISTRIBUTIONS FROM AN EMPLOYEE

STOCK OWNERSHIP PLAN

A taxpayer with a distribution from an employee stock own- ership plan (ESOP) should enter the amount of the distribu- tion in Column G if the stock in the ESOP has not been

allocated to the participants. Use payment type M H in Column B and the description “Non-Allocated ESOP Stock Dividend” in the space to describe the payment. If the stock has been allocated to the participants, input the same amount in Column F as reported in Column E and enter pay- ment type M H in Column B and the description “Allocated ESOP Stock Dividend” to describe the payment. Allocated ESOP stock dividends are taxable as dividend income for PA purposes. If a distribution from an ESOP is related to an allocated ESOP stock dividend, enter the name of the com- pany and amount of the distribution on Line 8 of PA Sched- ule B.

DISTRIBUTIONS OF EXCESS

CONTRIBUTIONS

A taxpayer with distributions of excess contributions and earnings on the excess contributions (distribution codes 8 and/or P in Box 7 of the 1099-R) must determine if the con- tributions being returned are from taxpayer contributions/de- ferrals or employer contributions. In cases where the excess contributions being returned are taxpayer contributions/de- ferrals, only the amount of excess contributions should be entered in Column F. Earnings on the excess contributions should not be included in the adjusted basis of previously taxed contributions. In cases where the excess contributions and earnings being returned are employer contributions, no entry should be made in Column F. In either case, a letter from the employer/plan administrator is required to provide whether or not the contributions being returned are taxpayer contributions/deferrals and a breakdown between the ex- cess contributions and the earnings on the excess contribu- tions when the excess contributions and earnings are from employee contributions/deferrals.

1099-R DISTRIBUTION CODE 4

A taxpayer with a distribution Code 4 (without Code D) on Form(s) 1099-R should also include the amount in Box 1 in eligibility income for Schedule SP, Special Tax Forgiveness purposes. The amount should be included in Section III, El- igibility Income, of Schedule SP on Line 4, Insurance pro- ceeds and inheritances.

ACTIVE DUTY MILITARY PAY

Taxpayers with military pay for active duty outside PA should complete PA Schedule W-2S and include the W-2 in Section I of PA Schedule W-2S. If any income is earned by a PA res-

ident while on active duty status within PA, that income should be included in the “PA compensation from Box 16” column. Do not include compensation earned while on active duty outside PA or if a nonresident on active duty within PA. If any PA income tax is withheld from the military pay, include the amount in the “PA income tax withheld from Box 17” col- umn. See the Military Pay – Members of the Armed Forces instructions on Page 41 of the PA-40IN, Pennsylvania Per- sonal Income Tax Instructions Booklet, for more information.

SURVIVOR BENEFITS REPORTED

AS CODE 7 ON FORM 1099-R

Taxpayers who receive retirement benefits as the beneficiary from a qualified joint survivor annuity reporting the distribu- tions to the taxpayer using Code 7 instead of Code 4 in Box 7 of federal Form 1099-R should also include the amount in Box 1 as eligibility income for Schedule SP, Special Tax For- giveness purposes. The amount should be included in Sec- tion III, Eligibility Income, of Schedule SP on Line 4, Insurance proceeds and inheritances.

KSOP DISTRIBUTIONS

Taxpayers with a distribution from an ESOP within a 401(k) (also known as a KSOP) other than a rollover distribution, must contact the department and provide a copy of the plan document in order to determine if the amount of the distri- bution is taxable.
