5498 IRA tax information

When you’ve made IRA contributions, rollovers, conversions, or recharacterizations to your accounts in a given tax year, Form 5498 will report this information to the IRS.

Who gets it

Shareholders who made contributions, rollovers or recharacterizations to their traditional, SEP, Simple or Roth IRAs, or who made Roth IRA conversions.

If no contributions are made for the year, use your Dec. 31st year-end statement to obtain the fair market value of your account.

When it's mailed

For traditional and Roth IRAs, with contributions, conversions, or rollovers, Thrivent Mutual Funds targets mail date by January 31st.

IRA contributions made between January 1st and the tax due date of the current year as a contribution for the previous tax year will generate a corrected 5498 tax form in the current year that will be mailed by May 31st.

If you want to make IRA contributions for the prior tax year, it must be postmarked by your tax return due date (generally April 15th) and designated as a contribution for the previous year.

For SEP or SIMPLE IRAs contributions from your employer, forms will be sent out in January.

What's in it

Expect to find the following:

  • contributions to traditional and Roth IRAs Rollovers made to IRAs
  • conversions from a traditional IRA, SEP IRA or SIMPLE IRA to a Roth IRA or qualified rollover contribution from an eligible retirement plan (other than IRA) to a Roth IRA
  • SEP and SIMPLE IRA contributions made through the employer during the calendar year
  • indications whether the IRA is subject to required minimum distributions (RMDs) in the following year
  • fair market value of IRAs as of Dec. 31st
  • recharacterizations (changing or undoing a traditional IRA contribution from a Roth IRA contribution or vice versa)
  • special postponed contributions (Allied Force, Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom and taxpayers affected by federally designated disaster areas)
  • repayment of a qualified reservist distribution or a designated disaster distribution repayment

How to use it

Use Form 5498 to confirm amounts you needed to report on your tax return related to contributions and rollovers.

Box 11 indicates if your account is subject to minimum distribution requirements for the upcoming year.
