My husband died last year and his IRA account at Paine Webber was rolled over into my IRA, also at PW (neither of us were retired). I just received a 1099-R for the distribution, and the box that says whether or not the distribution is taxable was marked "unable to determine" (or something like that).

I thought this was just a rollover, not a distribution - should I even have gotten a 1099-R? I thought the rollover/distribution would not be taxable, since it went straight into my IRA. When I do my income taxes, should I just indicate it's not taxable and not worry about it, or do I need to include an explanation? Perhaps I need to get Paine Webber to send a corrected 1099-R with the box checked as non-taxable?

If anyone could help me with this, I'd appreciate it.
