1An outstanding contribution pertains to multi-year rollovers, direct transfers and direct rollovers. You will need to increase the year-end balance (FMV) of your account by the amount received when you move tax free funds if the funds were received in the current year but distributed from the other plan or account in the previous year. This is true whether the transaction was a rollover from an IRA or qualified plan (such as a 401(k) and 403(b)), a direct transfer from another IRA, or a direct rollover from a qualified plan. In essence, you will need to increase your December 31 FMV by the amount that was transferred or rolled over and not included in the December 31 value of either account.
