1099 Tax Guide

Almost all investors receive some combination of 1099 forms, which report taxable investment activity to our clients and the IRS. The IRS requires brokerage firms to mail or electronically deliver these forms by Feb. 15 each year.

The following PDFs take you through the different 1099 forms Edward Jones provides and points out specifics that may assist you and your tax professional with preparing your return.

As an Edward Jones client, you can view and print your 1099s through Edward Jones Online Account Access. Simply click “Documents” after logging on.

Note: Please check to see whether your 1099 is marked “Figures Are Final” or “Figures Not Final.” Even though we must mail 1099s by Feb. 15, the issuers of some securities have until March 15 to provide brokerage firms with final tax data. This means we sometimes must mail 1099s marked “Figures Not Final.” Securities with a March 15 tax reporting deadline include CMO/REMICs, grantor unit investment trusts, royalty trusts, HOLDR trusts and mortgage trusts. If you hold these investments and you receive a “Figures Not Final” Consolidated 1099, be assured that we will work to issue your finalized 1099 as soon as we receive final data from the issuers of your investments, which may be mid-March.


For tax questions, consult your tax professional. For investment-related questions, please contact your local financial advisor.
