Qualified Roth Distribution
Roth 457 earnings are tax-free if the Roth participant meets all 3 of these requirements.
If one or more of these requirements are not met, it is considered a non-qualified Roth distribution and subject to taxation on the earnings portion of the distributed amount.
Roth contributions were invested after taxes were withheld so distributions of Roth contributions are tax-free.
