Cost basis on Form 1099-B

The Form 1099-B we furnish to you provides cost basis for securities you sold. However, if we are missing cost basis information, the form will indicate that the cost basis for that security is unknown. The cost basis may be unknown for several reasons, and you can help us update your cost basis by providing some information:

  • Certificate deposited: Tell your branch team the cost basis of the shares so we can update our system.
  • Transferred from a prior firm: Contact your prior firm to have them send us the cost basis.
  • Received as a gift: Obtain the cost basis information from the person who gave you the gift and provide it to your branch team.
  • Received due to a death: Contact your branch team to determine what information to provide.

Limited partnerships and royalty trusts

Additional documentation for limited partnerships and royalty trusts is provided by the organizations themselves. Edward Jones has no control over when they become available.

  • Limited partnerships: Partnerships are generally required to file tax returns and provide a Schedule K-1 directly to their limited partners by March 15. The website provides contact information and online access to Schedule K-1 for various limited partnerships.
  • Royalty trusts: Royalty trusts issue royalty trust booklets containing information needed to file your tax return. These may be issued as late as April. Most royalty trust booklets may be found online. Contact the issuer of the royalty trust with questions about the royalty trust booklet.


Address corrections: If the address on your tax form is incorrect, contact your financial advisor to make sure the address we have on file is updated.

Tax identification number corrections: We use the tax identification number on file with us as of Dec. 31 of the tax year when reporting to the IRS and on your tax forms. If the name or SSN/Tax ID on your form is incorrect, please contact your financial advisor to make sure the name or number we have on file is updated. The correct name and number will appear on all future tax forms. We are only allowed to correct a name or tax identification number on a current year tax form if the name or number used was incorrect due to our error.
