44. IOWA LUMP-SUM TAX.

A lump-sum distribution occurs when, in one tax year, you receive the total balance from the pension or profit-sharing plan of an employer due to termination of employment, termination of the plan, or death of the employee.

Iowa lump-sum tax applies only if IRS form 4972 was used to compute the Federal tax on any portion of the lump-sum distribution. If there is no Federal lump-sum tax, then there is no Iowa lump-sum tax.

IOWA RESIDENTS: Enter 25% of the Federal tax from IRS form 4972 on line 44 of the IA 1040. Attach Federal form 4972.

PART-YEAR RESIDENTS: If a lump-sum distribution reported on Federal form 4972 was received while an Iowa resident, 25% of the Federal tax from form 4972 must be entered on line 44. Part-year residents who receive a lump-sum distribution while not an Iowa resident are not subject to Iowa lump-sum tax on that distribution. A copy of the Federal form 4972 must be attached.

NONRESIDENTS: Nonresidents receiving lump-sum distributions are not subject to Iowa lump-sum tax.
