#1;Sorry for that ; it is my bad;as yu can see, an early w/d from your IRA can make you subject to some significant penalties and taxes that you must calculate on your next tax return.( Early w/d from either a traditional IRA or a R-IRA are usually considered to be non-qualified. Non-qualified withdrawals are subject to both ordinary taxation at the account holder's then current marginal tax rate plus a 10% tax penalty on the amount withdrawn.).I presumed you must have already paid estimated taxes on the early w/d penalties reported on line 60 on 1040 and it is 10% of the amount on line 15b to the IRS. Generally, you calculate the additional tax penalty directly on Form 5329 if you meet one of the exceptions and the retirement plan did not report the exception on Form 1099-R box 7.
#2; The Distribution code 3 is a distribution due to the disability and is an automatic exception to the 10% penalty. There is no need to file the 5329 for any distribution in which the 1099R reflects Distribution code 3.
You need to report the distribution on line 15A of the 1040 ,11A of the 1040A, and put the taxable portion on line 15B of the 1040 or line 11B of the 1040A And if there is no Federal withholding in Box 4 do not attach a copy of the 1099R to your return, you would only attach the 1099R if Federal taxes are withheld. If not, I guess, you need to attach form 5329 and show the disability exception to the 10% penalty. Line 2 Code 3 disability on Form 5329 will eliminate your problem.
I guess you can contact the IRS for more info in detail.
