What’s an eligible rollover distribution and what’s not can be a complicated and confusing matter. Here’s a recent and handy rollover chart by the Internal Revenue Service updated for new rules that may be helpful.
1 Qualified plans include, for example, profit-sharing, 401(k), money purchase and defined benefit plans
2 Beginning in 2015, only one rollover in any 12-month period. A transitional rule may apply in 2015.
3 Must include in income
4 Must have separate accounts
5 Must be an in-plan rollover
6 Any amounts distributed must be rolled over via direct (trustee-to-trustee) transfer to be excludable from income
