<< I am a federal government employee about to receive a court-ordered payment from my ex-spouse's Thrifty Savings Plan (TSP) in the amount of $8700. I would like to transfer the entire amount of this payment into my traditional IRA account, thereby avoiding a 20% federal tax. Since the court-ordered payment is from my ex's government 401(k), is this considered a transfer or not? >>You can treat a distribution made under a "Qualfied Domestic Relations Order" (QDRO) as if it was from your own plan, which would allow a rollover. See IRS Publication 575 for the requirements.Phil MartiTax Preparer
