2018 Tax Year – Form 1099 Statements from Pershing
This is a notice to clients who own Pershing accounts. As in prior years, you may not receive your final Form 1099 and other tax related forms from Pershing until mid-to-late March. In light of this, we suggest delaying the filing of tax returns until March/April 2019.
Pershing has begun mailing some Form 1099s as of this month. The latest Form 1099 mailing from Pershing is scheduled to go out on March 15, 2019. Please keep in mind that there may be amended versions sent after this date due to fund company revisions. These amended versions can arrive as late as April.
This is a common practice for many custodians and is not unique to Pershing. Companies such as Fidelity or Charles Schwab may also suggest waiting for amended 1099s.
