We have provided information below on 2022 tax document availability, as well as resources for retrieval of tax documents electronically through Investor360º.
We are also asking that you have your tax preparer send your final income tax return and supporting documents to Weller Group for our records. You can provide this written request to your tax preparer.
Tax document availability and extensions
- As in years past, NFS has requested a 30-day extension from the IRS’s initial mailing deadline of February 15.
- This allows NFS time to capture information for securities that have a high likelihood of late income reclassifications, potentially minimizing the need to create and distribute corrected tax forms that could result in amended returns.
- Some issuers have until March 15 to provide final information.
- Please refer to the Tax Form Mailing Dates chart provided below.
If you are scheduling an appointment with your tax preparer and are unsure if you have all of your tax documents for investments held through Weller Group, please contact our office in advance so that we can provide you with an updated timeframe for tax document availability.

Please note: In instances when tax reporting for an account occurs during the extension period, NFS will provide an online preliminary tax statement starting on February 11. This is viewable only in Investor360° and will provide a single view of current tax information to help you determine early tax liability. This is not reported to the IRS, and should not be used for tax reporting purposes.
Accessing Your Tax Form (NFS only)
If you are enrolled in e-notification, you will receive an email notifying you that your tax forms are ready to view. If you are not enrolled in e-notification, your form will be mailed within five business days of online posting.
In both cases, once issued, you may access an electronic version of your tax forms (see screenshot below) in Investor360°® under Statements & Documents > Tax Reporting > Most Recent.
Investor360º and paperless preference instructions
If you have not registered to use Investor360º, we encourage you to call our office to establish a login ID. Any investor in your household can request his or her unique login ID.
Once you have established access to Investor360º, you can elect your paperless preferences for your Commonwealth brokerage account(s) by following these steps.
Tax documents for non-Commonwealth investment accounts
If you hold investment products through Weller Group where the account is held directly at the investment product company (your investment account statement comes directly from American Funds, Fidelity, Franklin Templeton, Talcott, Lincoln, Oppenheimer, Prudential, etc.) rather than held within a Commonwealth brokerage account, there is no option to receive tax documents through Investor360º for such accounts. You will receive direct investment account tax documents by mail. Also, you can log onto the direct investment company’s website to retrieve tax documents.
There are other helpful resources related to taxes, including links to the IRS and NYS Tax Department on our Websites page.
