The Interactive Brokers Year End Reports provide an activity review for US persons and US entities. The various account statements provide the transaction details as the basis for each report. Each of the standard reports spans the time period from January 1 through December 31.
Some reports, such as the Gain/Loss Summary Worksheet, may consolidate transactions and calculations. For the sake of conserving volume, trade activity may be combined. The account statements include all activity. For your convenience and to assist with your reconcilation, customized statements permit activity displays suitable for your personal needs (see the tab "Customized Templates" for details).
All US tax reports include the total figures as required under the US tax laws.
Non-US Persons and Entities
Income paid from US sources to non-US persons and entities may find this comparison helpful. IB is required to withhold US taxes at a rate of 30% on payments of US source stock dividends and substitute payments in lieu. Both the withholding and the income is reported on the US tax Form 1042-S.
