Worksheet for Partially Taxable Pensions, Annuities, and IRA Distributions
Use the worksheet to report distributions from profit-sharing plans, retirement plans, employee savings plans, and individual retirement arrangements not fully taxable. Also, use this worksheet to report pension and annuity income not fully taxable. If the income or distribution is fully taxable you do NOT need to complete this worksheet. In general, you should receive a 1099-R showing the amount of your retirement plan distribution or income. If the taxable portion shown on your 1099-R is the same for Alabama purposes as for Federal purposes you do NOT need to complete this worksheet. Instead report the total and the taxable amount on Form 40, page 2, Part I, lines 4 or 5.
The taxable portion may NOT be the same for Alabama purposes as for Federal purposes because you may have a different cost basis. In this case, you must complete this worksheet to calculate the amount taxable for Alabama purposes.
