Why the change in 1099-R reporting from Chrysler?
From NCRO member firstname.lastname@example.org
For the past 20 years my 1099-R showed box 2a (Taxable amount) blank, and box 9b (Total employee contributions) with the amount that I contributed. My 2011 1099-R shows box 2a with the same figure as box 1 (Gross distribution) and box 9b (Total employee contributions) blank. I contacted Benefit Express several times and they responded saying that Chrysler would not change anything. I contacted another retiree and his 2011 1099-R also showed the same condition.
It appears that Chrysler is taking the Emplyee Contributions as their deductions, and would appear to be in conflict with the tax law.
