Since the money was not taxed when it was contributed to the plan, all amounts withdrawn from a 401k Plan are subject to regular income tax. If the account was tranfered to T> Rowe Price as an IRA, there are no tax consequences until you withdraw money from the IRA. Whatever amount is withdrawn from your 401k or IRA will be added to your taxable income for the year it is withdrawn. Normal Federal and State tax rates apply. Since you are over 59 1/2 there are no additional penalties for the withdrawal.
hope this helps, if not, please follow up.
