Why you may not receive a tax statement for a small amount

  • If any of your accounts earned less than $10 in income for the calendar year, you generally will not receive 1099-DIV, 1099-INT or 1099-OID forms because the IRS does not generally require tax reporting for these accounts.
  • There are exceptions to this rule. We will issue a tax statement if there was any amount of backup withholding, early withdrawal penalty, or foreign tax paid on accounts that earned less than $10 in income for the calendar year.
  • You may still need to report this income on your tax return. The total amount of income earned in 2017 in your account(s) can be viewed in the Activity Detail section on your last financial statement for 2017 and on your Ameriprise annual financial statement (available only on the secure site on ameriprise.com).

Why you might receive a Form 1042-S for account(s) owned by a U.S. entity

  • Entities that have not provided Ameriprise with a certified Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) are treated as foreign entities for Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) purposes.
  • Nonqualified4 accounts owned by entities such as trusts, corporations, partnerships, estates, etc., (not individual clients) without a certified TIN on file during any part of the year, will be subject to withholding on interest and dividend income during that time, under Chapter 4 of the Internal Revenue Code (currently 30%).
  • If Ameriprise does not have a certified TIN on file for your account(s) at any time during the year, you may receive Form 1042-S by March 15, 2018, reporting interest and dividend income and associated Chapter 4 withholding.
  • You may also receive any applicable Forms 1099-B reporting sale proceeds, cost basis information, and possibly other tax reporting if your TIN was certified at some point during the year.

Why you might receive updated tax statements

  • One of the reasons you might receive updated tax statements is due to income reclassification. You can anticipate an updated statement(s) if any of your nonqualified4 Ameriprise brokerage accounts or Managed Accounts investments hold investments in real estate investment trusts (REITs), Unit Investment Trusts (UITs) and certain mutual funds.
  • Income reclassifications and other adjustments are made by some companies that issue stock or mutual funds. They may provide updated information too late to be incorporated into the year-end tax statements.
  • Ameriprise may send updated tax statements when we receive revised information from the investment issuer, or when your account has other information changes.8,12
  • Tax reporting updates due to income reclassification can occur any time throughout the year.
  • We will only send new or updated tax statement(s) for accounts affected by changes. We will not resend any 2017 tax statements that don’t require updates.
  • To make it easier for you and your tax preparer to find the changes that were made to your tax reporting, amended tax packages for nonqualified Ameriprise brokerage accounts will include a statement called “Summary of Changes from Previous to Current Statement.”
  • You may also receive updated tax statements for other reasons, such as account corrections or cost basis updates.
