Retirement Plan Distributions

The vast majority of retirement plan distributions are subject to income tax by the IRS and are sometimes subject to an additional 10% tax. There are several exceptions to the 10% additional tax rule for qualified plans related to age, death, disability, domestic relations, education, medical and many more. 

The additional 10% tax commonly comes into play when an individual withdraws from a retirement plan before reaching the age of 59, making it an early or premature distribution. If you find yourself in a situation where you need to make an early or premature withdrawal, it is best to consult a tax professional.
