Thanks, pmarti.
My tax question is, how can I prevent additional tax and penalty on this erroneous Fidelity distribution? Any distribution request would have had to preceed or accompany my transfer request for them to distribute 2 days after transfer-in.

My idea was to _build a Roth_, not to empty it before it even arrived at Fidelity.
And yes, your assumption of moving outta' there as soon as things are straightened out is correct, as there has been another just-as-bad goofup.

I will request a corected 1099-R showing a zero distribution, but my phone conversation with
their bonehead has left me less than optimistic :+(
