Thanks - can she recover the taxes which have been withheld as a credit on her tax return? Also, is it the case that she will also avoid the 10% premature distribution penaly if she deposits the 10% withheld by the end of the 60 day window?

<<Is there anyway to fix this error either now or on her tax return?
She can make up the 10% withheld herself by adding an an equal amount to
her Roth but being sure to characterize it as a rollover contribution.
This needs to be done within the 60 day time limit of her original
rollover date.
