Tax season is just around the corner. To help you get organized, here’s a breakdown of tax forms you can expect from Stash, as well as six dates they are likely to be available.
For more information about the specific forms, you can go to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) website. The IRS is the official source of deadlines, rules, and regulations for your taxes. We also recommend consulting a tax professional if you have specific questions.
|On or before February 16, 2022 – Forms available!||Form 1099-R is available from Stash. You will only receive a 1099-R if you have taken a distribution (withdrawal) from your Stash Retire account that was $10 or more.
Consolidated Form 1099: If you meet the criteria for multiple 1099s, we will issue you what’s called a Consolidated 1099 that will combine all relevant forms into one convenient document. Many Stash investors will have Consolidated 1099s. A Consolidated 1099 may include:
|On or before March 15, 2022 – Corrected Consolidated Form 1099||This form consolidates all of the relevant 1099s related to your account and includes pertinent, updated information particular to these two investments, as well as any updates related to other ETFs and stocks in your portfolio. Your Corrected Consolidated 1099 will be available on or before March 15.
IMPORTANT: The Corrected Consolidated 1099 replaces the form you receive in February. It’s really important that you wait until you’ve received the Corrected Consolidated 1099 in March to accurately file your tax return. If you prefer filing your taxes early, it may be best to wait until you receive this form or consult a tax professional, since the IRS can fine you for filing your taxes twice. Consult a tax professional if you have any questions.
|On or before April 18, 2022 @ 3 p.m. EST||Stash Retire customers – this is the final deadline to make a contribution toward your 2021 IRA. Any contributions made after 3:00 p.m. EST on April 18 will go toward your 2022 contribution limit.
|April 18, 2022 – Tax Day!||This is your deadline to file your taxes this year. Certain states have specific deadlines, so be sure to check your state’s website for the most accurate deadline information.
|On or before June 1, 2022 – Form 5498 Available||This form is only applicable for Stash customers with a Stash Retire IRA. The form will showcase all activity, such as contributions, rollovers, etc., that took place within your Stash Retire IRA during the 2021 tax year. This form is mostly for your records. It is sent to you and to the IRS, and it is not necessary in order for you to file your taxes.
|October 17, 2022 – Tax Day Take 2||This is the last day to file your taxes if you’ve previously filed for an extension.
|December 31, 2022||Take the required minimum distribution (RMD)
If you’re 72 or older, you must take a required minimum distribution from your IRA every year, also known as an RMD. (That’s 70 ½ if you reach 70 ½ before January 1, 2021.) If you have an IRA and you meet these criteria, remember to take your RMD by the end of 2022, as you are required to take your RMD by December 31 of each year. You can figure out how much you need to withdraw from your account by using the worksheets found here.
Last day to buy or sell stocks in order to claim gains and losses
When you file your taxes, you have to claim your capital gains and losses, or how much you earned or lost by buying and selling investments this year. One strategy you might use is to sell investments that have lost value to offset the taxes you’ll have to pay on gains, which is called tax-loss harvesting. In order to employ this strategy, you’ll have to make any sales or purchases by the end of the 2022 year.
