    The taxable amount is $46,000. If you paid tax on that
    amount, that would normally be your basis in the stock but
    in this case, you also had $17,000 in employee contributions
    so you add that amount to total $63,000. It looks like the
    employer withheld $9,100 in federal tax so you would not get
    hit so hard on your tax return but that has nothing to do
    with your basis.

    The employer reported $91,200 in NUA so it seems like $800
    is missing. Are you sure your numbers are correct?

    If you had rolled over $46,000 of this stock into an IRA
    within 60 days of distribution, you might have been able to
    avoid paying current tax on any of it. I assume you are
    over age 59 1/2 because it shows as code 7, normal
    distribution.

    All freely provided advice guarantee correct or double your
    money back
