When Your 2021 Tax Forms Will Be Available
Our goal at Central Trust Company is to provide you with accurate and timely tax information. To accomplish this, we generally await receipt of final tax information before issuing your tax forms to ensure the information is as accurate as possible. We would like you to be aware that some companies in which we hold investments on your behalf are not able to provide final tax information to us until late February or early March, resulting in a delay in the delivery of your tax forms to you.
The IRS provides dates by which we are required to mail certain tax forms. The table below shows the IRS mailing deadline for various forms. Despite these IRS prescribed deadlines, we will provide you with your tax forms as soon as your data is available. If you have multiple accounts with Central Trust Company, Forms 1099 may be mailed on different dates.
1 Extended deadline for mailing Consolidated Form 1099s to taxpayers is March 15, 2022. Consolidated Form 1099s that include tax reporting of Widely-Held Fixed Investment Trusts (WHFIT’s) are also due to recipients by March 15, 2022.
2 REMICS and CMOs are required to provide certain information in statement form in addition to a 1099-INT and/or 1099-OID.
3 If you make a contribution or rollover for the 2021 tax year, Form 5498 will be sent to you in May. Otherwise, the December 31, 2021 year-end value of your IRA will be provided on your December 2021 account statement (sent in early January). A separate letter will be sent to you by January 31, 2022 detailing your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) amount for the 2022 tax year.
Due to various mailing deadlines, it is possible, based upon the type of account and/or assets, that you will receive multiple mailings. We encourage you to consult your tax advisor regarding when to file your tax returns.
Important note: Your Consolidated Form 1099 Statement is the official document for tax reporting purposes (rather than your December account statement), and will be provided to the IRS.
