Additional Helpful Information
- The early withdrawal penalty on an IRA CD is not rollover eligible. For instance, if the CD balance is $1,000, and the early withdraw penalty is $50, only $950 is rollover eligible.
- The early withdrawal penalty is not treated as a distribution. Therefore it is not reported on IRS Form 1099-R.
