Form 1099-B

What does it report?

Form 1099-B reports net proceeds from the sale of shares through the share redemption program in taxable accounts.

These proceeds are categorized by short-term gains, long-term gains or losses. These proceeds are categorized by short-term gains, long-term gains or losses. Short-term gains are generally taxed at your ordinary income rate and long-term gains at the long term capital gains rate, which is typically lower than the ordinary income tax rate.

What else should I know?

This form may report cost basis, gains and losses, and other information to report the sale or exchange of shares.

If you sold shares in a taxable account during the tax year, such a transaction will be reported on Form 1099-B. If shares are “covered securities” as defined in Internal Revenue Code Section 6045, the cost basis and corresponding gain or loss is reported. If all or any of your shares are “uncovered securities”, which are generally shares purchased prior to January 2011, you are responsible for calculating the specific taxable gain or loss resulting from the total proceeds reported on Form 1099-B. Please consult a tax professional for guidance.
