Due to a screw up at my former employer, I received a total distribution from my 401k plan. I then put that check into a IRA then a Roth. At the time we were too financially strapped to put the early distribution and taxes withheld back into the account to make up the total amount. So now its tax time........

I paid taxes and early distribution on the 401k, does that mean I have to pay additional taxes on the money I put into the Roth, it was the same money!!!!! All my tax software says I do, but I am confused. What do I do? On what line? Help.........
