AmeriTrust 2019 Form 1099 Reporting

Each year, AmeriTrust Trust Company mails to you Forms 1099 reporting dividends, interest, gains and losses, and other income earned in your Trust / Agency / Custody account which we administer on your behalf.

As a result of the recent system conversion, you may receive two tax forms for your accounts.  One form will represent the reporting period January 1, 2019 through November 30, 2019 while the other tax form will represent the final month of the year, December 2019.  The combined forms should be used to complete your annual tax filing requirements.

The law requires we must mail Forms 1099-DIV, 1099-INT, 1099-OID, and 1099-MISC to clients no later than January 31st or March 15th if reporting by trustees and middlemen of WHFITs. The law further requires that Form 1099-B be mailed no later than February 15th or March 15th if Widely Held Fixed Income Investment trusts (WHFITs) are held. Law allows the consolidation of Forms 1099-B, 1099-DIV, 1099-INT, and 1099-OID, so, if WHFITs are held, the deadline for mailing the 1099s becomes March 15th.

We feel that it is important that you receive the most accurate Form 1099 that segregates “qualified” dividends, which are taxed at lower tax rates on your individual income tax returns. In order to accurately segregate.

We do not anticipate receiving the necessary information from these companies until late January or early February 2020. Because our Form 1099s are consolidated with the 1099-B, 1099-DIV, 1099-INT, and 1099-OID documents, it will not be possible to prepare and mail accurate tax reporting by the January 31, 2020 deadline. We have requested, and received, an extension of time for mailing tax information to clients in order to provide the most accurate information for your tax filing.

Your Form 1099 will be mailed as soon as all information is received on your assets. Our mailing of the combined Form 1099 for 2019 may vary from January 31st to March 15th. Your Form 1099 will be mailed no later than March 15, 2020.

Please contact your account administrator should you have any questions or concerns.
