Wife borrowed $175,000 from her IRA in 2017 to purchase our new home. It was paid back within 60 days, using proceeds from the sale of a home, making the loan non taxable. ============>>>you can use your IRA to take a short-term loan, without having to pay taxes or penalties on the amount borrowed; If your need for money is short-term, you can take advantage of the tax-free rollover provisions in the IRA laws. However, The IRS considers money that you borrow from a traditional IRA account a taxable distribution. This means that you must pay taxes on the loan proceeds at your income tax rate. If you are under age 59 1/2, you will also owe a 10 percent tax penalty on the money that you borrowed, unless it qualifies for an exemption. The taxes on this loan will be due for the tax year that you took the disbursement. If you pledge your traditional IRA account as collateral for a loan, the IRS considers the entire balance of the account a distribution, and you will owe income tax and any applicable penalties on the balance of the IRA.
However, the 1099 indicates that loan as a taxable distribution. Found out the 175,000 repaid will be reported on form 5598 as late as May 31. How can I file my taxes by April 17 without that 5598? =============>>If you received a 1099-R, then enter that form in your return.
