IRS has expanded the exception to the 10% additional tax for early distributions of certain retirement accounts, including for qualified public safety employees, correctional officers, and those with terminal illnesses. It has also increased the age to start required minimum distributions and clarified distribution rules.
What is Form 5329?
Form 5329 is an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) form used to report additional taxes on IRAs, other qualified retirement plans, modified endowment contracts, Coverdell ESAs, qualified tuition plans, Archer MSAs, Health Savings Accounts, and Achieving a Better Life Experience accounts. Taxpayers must file Form 5329 if they received a distribution subject to the tax on early distributions from a qualified retirement plan, contributions for the year exceed the contribution limit, or RMDs are missed.

Various updates including exceptions to the 10% tax on early distributions, higher RMD ages, reduced excise tax for RMDs, and qualified disaster recovery distributions are applicable to the filing of Form 5329.
