Tax Form Availability

Our goal is to provide you with accurate and timely tax information. To help us accomplish this goal, we make sure we've received and processed all relevant information before making your tax forms available.

The 2015 tax deadline has been extended

Taxpayers have until Monday, April 18 to file 2015 tax returns because of the April 15 Emancipation Day holiday in Washington DC. Taxpayers in Maine and Massachusetts have until Tuesday, April 19 because of the Patriot’s Day holiday on April 18.

Why some forms might not be available until after the IRS deadline

We believe it is important to post tax forms after we have received all anticipated information. Sometimes issuers (e.g., the company or municipality offering securities for sale to investors) are unable to send the final information in time for us to meet IRS deadlines. In such cases, we request a 30-day extension to mail tax information for assets that do not provide final information until after the February 16 initial deadline. Waiting for final information allows us to send you one correct form, instead of multiple versions, which could result in you having to amend your return.

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

For 1099 forms, Fidelity follows the IRS rule de minimis (i.e., not enough to be considered). If the income on the tax form is less than $10.00, we don't mail a tax form or report the income to the IRS. However, we post the form online and notify you by email. When you view these forms online, you'll see a watermark and a label on the top right of the form saying "de minimis".

Note: There are exceptions to this rule. If you sold shares or had tax withholding for any amount and/or if foreign taxes were paid, we will mail you a tax form.

A 1099 is similar to a W-2, but while a W-2 reports wages, salaries, and tips, a 1099 reports many other kinds of income. Fidelity produces consolidated statements (combining several IRS forms) for our nonretirement account holders:

  • 1099-DIV: Dividends and distributions for nonretirement brokerage and Fidelity Mutual Fund accounts
  • 1099-INT: Interest income for nonretirement brokerage accounts
  • 1099-MISC: Miscellaneous income for nonretirement brokerage accounts
  • 1099-B: Proceeds from broker and barter exchange transactions for nonretirement brokerage and Fidelity Mutual Fund accounts
  • 1099-OID: Original issue discount from certain debt obligations for nonretirement brokerage accounts

All customers with funded IRAs can expect to receive a Form 5498. The details will include the fair market value as of December 31, beneficiary information on file and any contributions made in the preceding tax year. In addition to IRA contributions, Form 5498 summarizes rollovers, recharacterizations, conversions, and reconversions. This is the information Fidelity is required to report to the IRS.

Supplemental 1099-OID (REMIC)

If you own certain real estate mortgage investment conduits (REMICs), financial asset securitization investment trusts (FASITs), and/or collateralized mortgage obligations (CMOs) in a nonretirement brokerage account and earned OID, you will receive this supplemental form.



You will receive a 2439 form if you have a brokerage or Fidelity Mutual Fund account in which a mutual fund or a real estate investment trust retained its long-term capital gains.
