I did a RMD rollback in 2020. How do I reflect this strategy on my taxes?
The rollback amount will not be reflected on the 1099R from Pershing. Clients will need to alert their tax preparer so they can have their taxes prepared correctly for 2020. The transactions are reflected on the December 2020 statement from Pershing.
How do I find the amount of municipal bond income that is excluded from state tax?
If you owned a municipal bond fund and are being asked for the amount in which your income dividend is also to be excluded from state tax, use these sites:
American Funds: https://www.capitalgroup.com/individual/service-and-support/tax-center/interactive-worksheets/munibondtax.htm
T. Rowe Price: https://www.troweprice.com/personal-investing/planning-and-research/tax-planning/prepare-your-taxes/fund-specific-tax-and-reclassification-info/tax-information-for-t-rowe-price-tax-free-funds.html#SNTFFI
If you owned municipal bond funds from other companies, you can use Pershing’s helpful tool: https://ofx.netxinvestor.com/tools/mftoolsecure
When will I receive my tax documents?
January 31: Form 1099 was sent for those clients who hold only stocks and bonds. Form 1099-R was sent for those clients with retirement account distributions (IRAs).
February 15: Form 1099 was sent for those clients who have mutual funds, REITs, etc. If a 1099 was not ready, a “Pending 1099” notice was sent to you.
February 28: Most of the remaining final 1099s should be sent at this point.
March 15: This final 1099 mailing would be for the fund companies that were very late in sending income reclassification data to Pershing, causing them to miss the February 28th deadline.
