While the unofficial due date, as mentioned last week here, is next Wednesday February 12th, forms are dropping day by day.
As a reminder, EVERYONE will receive a paper copy of these forms, electronic versions will be posted as soon as they are mailed out.
The Whole Enchilada form, AKA Consolidated 1099 which includes the following:
Form 1099-B, Form-DIV, Form 1099-INT, Form 1099-MISC, and Form 1099-OID
This will be the form that is the last to arrive, due to so many moving parts. Donald the Brian spent over a month in the fall last year confirming basis information to help thwart needed corrected forms… but they may still occur as each investment entity may also have a correction, spurring a completely new Whole Enchilada Consolidated 1099.
If there were less than $10 worth of activity, the IRS does not care and as such a 1099 will not be sent. Alert..this could happen easier than you think, even if the account had sizable value, but little interest or dividends and no sales!
Reach out with any questions!
Working on a deep dive, likely multi-part Article for the Newsletter about ETF’s … the more stats we find, the more interesting the Article is getting… Ya Mrs. Cain, you were right.. we would need to know how to do that extensive research paper…sure it easier with the web… Look for abbreviated posts here in the not too distant future!
Weekend Almost Here
Today is a Friday…. some unusually cold weather this week… maybe nearing the last way down here in the south…
This from a relatives front porch who is actually south of Dallas… we had none here!
Know you guys up north see this constantly, but not so much in our neck of the woods anymore…novelty remains here for sure!
Have a Great Friday and Super Weekend!
