Tax Reporting: What to do if your consolidated form 1099 is not posted in the Tax Forms section of Client Portal

First, you must determine from which account you are missing your consolidated form 1099.  Retirement account and educational savings account 1099s are sent to you by mail, if applicable. If you are missing a consolidated form 1099, verify that you sold shares of stock during the previous tax year for equities or covered a short position opened after 2010 or that you bought or sold futures contracts during that same period or that you received an interest (including interest on free cash) or dividend payment in an account.

Once you have reviewed your account activity from the previous tax year, and, you have determined that you should have received a 1099 for an account, please contact our Client Service department with specific details of transactions, including the name of the security, number of shares/contracts, and the trade date. We will research the issue and will advise you once we have concluded our investigation.
