If I do Roth contributions for my 401k, should I expect a 1099-R? I'm not sure what that form is for exactly.
Contributions to your Roth 401(k) will not generate a 1099-R. The 1099-R is generated when you take distributions from a retirement account or pension plan. The main place you'll see evidence of the contributions to a Roth 401(k) account will be in your W2, indicating contributions to a retirement plan (although these won't be excluded from income) and in your account statement. A form 5498 may also be generated for your account(s) indicating inflow and/or outflow of funds for the tax year.
Hope this helps -
