Utah Additions to Income

When you include Additions to your Income on the return these entries appear on line 5 of your state return. The TC-40A (attachment) Part 1 shows a breakout of all of your entries.



Medical Care Savings Account

An MSA account holder should receive a form TC-675M, Statement of Withholding for Utah Medical Savings Account, from the account administrator each year contributions are made. Include the sum of lines 8 and 9 from form TC-675M to the extent the amount was deducted on your Utah return for a tax year before 2008, or was used in calculating the MSA credit on your Utah return after 2007.  

  • Any disbursement of assets from a MSA account pursuant to a filing for protection under 11 U.S.C. Sec. 101 to 1330; and
  • Any amount withdrawn that is not deducted on your federal tax return under IRC Section 220.

Keep Form TC-675M with your records.



Lump Sum Distribution

The IRS taxes lump sum distributions on form 4972, with the tax on the distribution added to your regular income tax on form 1040. Because the income from the lump sum distribution is not included in federal adjusted gross income, you must add any distribution to Utah additions to income.

Note:  This addition to income only applies if you filed form 4972 with your federal form 1040 for the current year.



Utah Educational Savings Plan Unqualified Withdrawal (UESP) Addback

If you withdrew an amount from a Utah Educational Savings Plan (UESP) 529 account but did not use it for qualified higher education expenses and the withdrawal did not meet an exception under IRC Section 529(c) or Section 530(d), enter that amount to the extent the amount was deducted or used in calculating the UESP credit on the current or a previously filed Utah tax return. A UESP account holder should receive form TC-675H, Statement of Contributions and Disbursements for the Utah Educational Savings Plan, from UESP. Keep this form with your records. If you have any questions about UESP, call 801-321-7188 or 1-800-418-2551, or
