DELAYED COMPOSITE STATEMENT OF 1099 FORMS
In the interest of providing you with the most accurate and-up to-date tax information, Raymond James will delay a Composite Statement of 1099 Forms (1099-B, DIV, INT, MISC, and OID) that they know has pending information from the issuers and will cause an amended form.
Reasons for delay:
- Income reallocation related to mutual funds, real estate investment, unit investment, grantor and royalty trusts; as well as holding company depositary receipts
- Processing of Original Issue Discount and Mortgage Backed bonds
- Expected cost basis adjustments including but not limited to accounts holding fixed income securities and options
AMENDED FORM 1099s
Even after delaying your Form 1099, please be aware that adjustments to your Form 1099 are still possible. Raymond James is required by the IRS to produce an amended Form 1099 if notice of such an adjustment is received after the original Form 1099 has been produced. There is no cutoff or deadline for amended Form 1099 statements. The following are some examples of reasons for amended Form 1099s:
- Income reallocation
- Adjustments to cost basis (due to the Economic Stabilization Act of 2008)
- Changes made by mutual fund companies related to foreign withholding
- Tax-exempt payments subject to alternative minimum tax
- Any portion of distributions derived from U.S. Treasury obligations
If you receive an amended Form 1099 after you have already filed your tax return, you should consult with your tax professional about the requirements to re-file based on your individual tax circumstances.
