Statute of Limitations is tolled if excess Roth IRA contributions are not reported on return

The Tax Court’s decision in Paschall, (2011) 137 TC No. 2 held that the statute of limitations for assessing the excise tax on excess contributions to a Roth IRA remains open where a taxpayer fails to report the contributions on his return. The excess contributions in the case were caused by an attempt to use a so-called “Roth restructure” transaction to disguise excess contributions to the taxpayer’s Roth IRA. The taxpayer also was held liable for additions to tax under Code Sec. 6651(a)(1).
