Tax Form Consolidated 1099

This tax document reports taxable events on a taxable account. On your Consolidated 1099, you may find a few different types of forms. These include the 1099-B, 1099-DIV, and the 1099-MISC. Depending on your situation, you may have one or all forms.
|1099-B||Your consolidated 1099 will contain this if you have performed sells on your account. This form is used to report gains or losses from the preceding year.|
