The 5498 form reports IRA contributions (including catch-up contributions) and the fair market value of an IRA. If you made an IRA contribution, 60-day rollover, or direct rollover for the reporting year, you’ll get a 5498 form.*
We typically provide this form at the end of May. Eligible retirement account owners typically have until April 15 to make a prior-year contribution to their account. We will send the 5498 forms after that date to ensure all prior year contributions are included.
*Contributions to a qualified retirement plan (QRP) are reported on your W-2. The IRS and your tax professional can provide more information on reporting IRA contributions.
You can find the most recent versions of your consolidated 1099 and other tax documents in the Statements Section (1) within your Schwab Client portal. Simply click on the Tax Forms (2) section to find the form you need to download.
The IRS generally requires that you file an amended return on Form 1040X. You may also wish to seek the advice of a licensed tax advisor.
Schwab must issue a corrected 1099 when mutual funds and Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) reallocate or reclassify their distributions in January for the previous tax year. Occasionally this process isn’t complete, or Schwab has not yet received the updated information, by the time 1099s are due to be mailed.
IRS regulations require that we issue a corrected 1099 within 30 days of receiving information showing that the previously issued form was incorrect.
In this video, Schwab walks through the types of accounts that typically generate a 1099 and some of the most important sections of this tax document. Then they also talk about how the information on the form is used, when and how you’ll receive it, and the possibility of receiving a corrected 1099. Click Here.
