Will I get a tax form 1099?

February 05, 2024

First thing: there are many 1099 tax forms used by the IRS. As related to investments, our clients will typically receive:

  1. 1099 Consolidated: This form includes dividends, interest and other income all on one document, for nonqualified accounts
  2. 1099-R: Used to report distributions from retirement accounts


There are lots of other 1099s to report different types of taxable income. You may receive 1099s from other institutions if you:

  • received nonemployee compensation, such as from consulting or a small business.
  • received unemployment income
  • have cancellation of debt
  • received other miscellaneous income, such as rents, prizes, or award


Our clients can expect a tax form 1099 (or more than one!) if: 

  • You took a distribution from an employer retirement plan, such as a 401(k) or 403(b)
  • You took a distribution from an IRA or a variable annuity;
    • Including Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs)
  • You have taxable, non-qualified investments that have paid out capital gains or dividends;
