We are committed to help you get through tax time with the information you and your CPA need to expedite the investment related portion of your tax return.
Schwab will send you a 1099 on each of your taxable accounts by mid-February.
You may get a 1099-R on an IRA account if you have taken IRA distributions out of the account.
Schwab may send you revised 1099’s as they get corrected. This is pretty typical in the industry as various investments re-characterize certain items.
We have arranged with Schwab to send you in mid-February a Year-End Gain/Loss report which is for any taxable account you have at Schwab. This report is not sent to the IRS and reflects investment cost basis which is computed using a high cost basis. This is a method that will help minimize your tax liability.
We are preparing reports that contain the same information as your cost basis report and are designed to facilate preparation of your Schedule D. If your CPA requests it directly from us, we can also provide the IRS formatted Schedule D.
FOLIOfn will not send you any mail directly except if you have taken IRA distributions, then you would get a paper 1099-R from them.
For your taxable accounts at FOLIOfn, we will internally generate the information you need and will send it to you by March 15th. Keep in mind that some of this information is also available on line from FOLIOfn at any time and the 1099’s will be available no later than 2/28. There is a likelihood that the 1099 information might get slightly revised and we will forward updates as needed.
You will get from us a 1099 Report as well as the Cost basis information in a format that can be attached to your schedule D thereby saving you or your tax preparer quite a bit of time. If you have selected our paperless delivery option, the reports will be placed on the Secure Service Delivery Platform on line, accessible under the client center on our website. Once you have received all the information, you will need to provide it to your tax preparer. If you have given us written authorization to discuss your situation with them, we will be happy to assist them with the process if they contact us.
It is likely that there will be revised tax information sent to you up until early April. Typically the revisions are relatively small. This is an industry wide issue. Certain accounts may also receive K-1 tax reporting which is usually sent in late March. We strongly advise that you wait until the first week of April to actual file your return in order to minimize the chances of having to file an amended return.
