Answer

and IRA Distributions ,Alabama Partially Taxable Pensions, Annuities, and IRA Distributions ,Amounts may be considered nondeductible contributions for the following reasons:

  • The Federal Tax Reform Act of 1986 allowed you to make nondeductible contributions to your IRA even if you were unable to deduct all, part, or none of the contributions. Your nondeductible contribution is the difference between your total allowable IRA contributions (up to the maximum amount) and the amount you deducted on your Alabama return that year.
  • Qualified contributions made by you to an individual retirement arrangement (IRA), simplifiedemployee pension (SEP), or Keogh plan before January 1, 1982, are considered part of your nondeductible contributions since Alabama did not allow you to defer tax on these contributions.
  • Qualified contributions you made to a Federal 401(k)(2) plan or 403(b) plan before January 1,1985 are considered part of your cost since Alabama did not allow you to defer tax on these contributions.
