Provided below is information on the availability and retrieval of 2023 tax forms for Commonwealth investment accounts1.
1If you own investment accounts held away from Commonwealth Financial Network/National Financial Services (i.e. - American Funds, Lincoln, Prudential, etc.), those tax forms are not available through Investor360º. You will receive tax forms from direct investment companies by mail, or if you signed up for e-delivery through the direct company website, you will receive an e-mail when tax forms are available online.
Tax form 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 forms for investments held through Weller Group, please contact our office in advance so that we can provide you with an updated timeframe for tax form availability.
