I think the question (at least it is my question) is the 1099R received from the custodian shows the distribution but not the fact the money was put back in to the account.

So how should that be handled?


Since it was a non-trustee to trustee rollover, it is correct that the 1099R only reports the distribution.

Report the taxable amount as $0 providing the entire distribution was rolled over or the appropriate amount if partial rollover.

Keep documentation that the rollover was properly completed even though the administrator should also report the roll in separately.
