State Income Tax Withholding

Share

Waddell & Reed Services Company may withhold state income tax on certain distributions made from retirement accounts where Fiduciary Trust Company of New Hampshire serves as custodian.

The Plan Types that may be subject to state income tax are:

  • IRAs (including Traditional, SEP, SARSEP & SIMPLE)
  • Roth IRAs
  • 403(b)(7) Tax Sheltered Custodial Accounts (TSAs)
  • Profit Sharing and Money Purchase Plans (Keoghs)

Whether your retirement account(s) is/are subject to state withholding depends on, at the time of your distribution:

  1. Your tax residence is within a state that requires state income tax to be withheld;
  2. The distribution amount is in excess of the state's exclusion amount (if applicable).

The respective state withholding will be reported on IRS Tax Form 1099-R.

Please refer to the chart below for a current list of states for which Waddell & Reed Services Company applies the mandated state income tax on certain distributions.

*Eligible Rollover Distribution (ERD) refers to those distributions from Qualified Plans that are eligible to move between various fiduciary plan types (for example - 403(b), 401(k)) without tax consequences. These Qualified Plan types are referred to in Internal Revenue Code (IRC) 401(a) and include Profit Sharing, 401(k), Money Purchase Pension, Defined-Benefit, and ESOP. An ERD may also be from an IRC 403(b) (7) plan, which is for employees of non-profit institutions and public schools.

If an election is made to take an ERD from these plans in cash or "in kind" there is a mandatory 20% federal withholding. When this occurs, various states require withholding as indicated.
