Music my name is Terry White CEO of Sunwest trust and we do these videos periodically we were doing them once a week now we'll probably do them about once every two weeks so if you're interested in these videos be sure and subscribe to this channel Sunwest IRA and give us some comments if you like it if you didn't like it if you'd like some more information please leave us a comment and we'll try to get an answer to you and maybe we'll do a video based on your comment so these videos are for education purposes only they're not meant to take the place of a good CPA or tax attorney and today we're doing a little bit different video so I apologize if I'm not looking at you I'm looking at the screen I'm doing this from my desk computer so that I can pull up some documents and and guide you on a way to analyze some of the documents that some of the forms that you're going to be getting from your custodian and probably have already gotten this particular video is being done in early February and 1099s are required to go out from the custodian by the end of January so you've probably gotten your 1099 and I wanted to talk to you just a little bit about the information on there and give you some idea of the questions that you might want to ask your CPA or tax person when you're filing your income tax so the first thing I did is I went to a great website that I found IRS gov and they're on that website on the top right hand corner there's a search bar that you can go in and search so if you put in 1099 are in that search bar it's going to bring up a page where it talks about all about 1099 RS now the 1099 R is the form that the that the IRA custodian is required to send you to report if you've taken money out of your IRA so if you're watching this video and you didn't get a 1099 R that's because you didn't take anything out of your IRA so if you took something out of your IRA took money out of your IRA for whatever purpose and you didn't get it 9r you need to contact your custodian could have gotten lost in the mail or something so be sure and contact them you need to have that 1099-r and you need to report what you've taken out of your your IRA and then use that 1099-r to report that so if you got a 1099 our it's because you took some took money out of your IRA so I want you to look at the 1099 are itself the form itself there's a lot of information on there it's got your name the amount of money you took out taxable amount of it if you're taking the money out of a Roth you know there wouldn't be a taxable amount if you met the criteria those kinds of things but what I want you to focus on today is box number seven where it says distribution codes and that's what you're going to look at to determine why the custodian sent you the 1099 and how they're reporting this to the IRS so if you go to that IRS website irsgov and you look...
