Important dates

Keep in mind that although deadlines are published by the IRS, most companies file for (and are normally granted) extensions for reporting client tax information.  It’s also possible you’ll receive corrected 1099s from your financial services company as late as March 31st.  

For most taxpayers, we recommend waiting until at least February 28th, to deliver 1099s to tax preparers.  You can start gathering and providing other tax-related documents sooner, but hold off on the 1099s, especially if you have a history of receiving corrected 1099s.

These forms show reportable distributions from IRAs and 403(b)’s during the 2022 tax year.
  • Mid-January — Charles Schwab 1099-R and 5498 tax forms are available online and mailed to investors.
  • January 20th — SEI Private Trust Company 1099-R tax forms are available online and mailed to investors.

What is Form 1099-R?  Form 1099-R is used to report designated distributions of $10 or more from pensions, annuities, profit-sharing and retirement plans, IRAs, and insurance contracts.

What is a Composite 1099 tax form?  Charles Schwab and SEI Private Trust Company will sometimes refer to the tax forms 1099-DIV, 1099-INT, 1099-B, and 1099-OID as Combined or Composite 1099 tax forms.  These are for non-retirement accounts.

What is Form 1099-Div?  Form 1099-DIV is used by banks and financial institutions to report dividends and other distributions to taxpayers and to the IRS.

What is Form 5498?  If you made contributions (deposits) to your IRA account for the tax year, you’ll receive Form 5498 detailing those contributions in May. Form 5498 is for informational purposes only.  You are not required to file it with your tax return. 

Which tax documents will I receive for my account?

For individual, joint, and trust investment accounts, you’ll receive a Composite 1099 including details of dividends paid (Form 1099-DIV) and security sales (Form 1099-B), if there were any of these transactions in your account for that tax year.  If there weren’t any security sales or dividends paid into your account, you won’t receive a Form 1099.

For retirement accounts, including Traditional, Roth, and SEP IRAs, you’ll receive a Form 1099-R only if a distribution (withdrawal) was made during the year.  If you made no contributions to your IRA for the year and took no distributions, you will not receive tax documents for your retirement account.


Account Contributions — Contributions must be made prior to filing your tax return.  The last day to make an IRA, Solo 401k, SEP IRA, etc. contribution is April 18th, but we ask clients to plan on making contributions by April 11th to ensure they’re processed and received on time.
New Charles Schwab Investors — If you moved accounts to Schwab in late 2021 or anytime in the 2022 calendar year, you’ll likely receive a 1099 from SEI and Charles Schwab.  Be sure you have both before filing your taxes.
Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCD) — QCDs are reported as a normal distribution on IRS Form 1099-R for any non-inherited IRAs.  The Form 1099-R will NOT make any mention of your QCDs.  It is your responsibility to report directly to your tax preparer.  You can learn more here.

Create A Morning Routine That You Love

The first hour of your morning can dictate your productivity for the rest of the day, so it's worth investing in a morning routine you love. How do some of the most successful people spend the first few hours of their day? Here are a few tips:
  1. Don't check your email for the first hour of your workday.  Spend time thinking about things you're grateful for; this will help set a positive tone for your day.
  2. Mark Twain famously said that if you eat a live frog first thing in the morning, you've got it behind you for the rest of your day.  Consider doing your most challenging work first thing in the morning.
  3. Do some light movement, such as going for a walk, stretching, or yoga.
What are some of your favorite morning rituals?

The Week on Wall Street

Stocks added to their early 2023 gains amid a busy stream of mixed corporate earnings results and conflicting economic data.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 1.81%, while the Standard & Poor’s 500 added 2.47%. The Nasdaq Composite index rose 4.32% for the week. The MSCI EAFE index, which tracks developed overseas stock markets, increased by 1.14%.1,2,3


Stocks Advance

With the backdrop of earnings reports and conflicting economic data, stocks climbed higher on cooling inflation, continued economic resilience, and fourth-quarter corporate earnings results that, while underwhelming, did not appear as bad as many had feared.

There was enough new economic data to support both the “recession is coming” and the “soft landing” camps. It was corporate results and continued labor market strength, along with a solid, if weakening, fourth-quarter Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth number, however, that raised investors’ hopes that a potential recession may be mild and likely pushed out to later in the year.


GDP Report

The U.S. economy expanded at a 2.9% annualized rate in the fourth quarter, slightly exceeding consensus estimates of 2.8% but down from the third quarter’s 3.2% growth rate. Consumer spending, which accounts for over two-thirds of GDP, rose 2.1%. Increases in private inventory investment, government spending, and nonresidential fixed investment also contributed to the fourth quarter’s growth. Weakness in housing and a drop in exports subtracted from the quarter’s result.4

Beneath the headline number, the personal consumption expenditures price index (the Fed’s preferred measure of inflation) rose 3.2%. That was lower than the third quarter’s 4.8% increase, though it remains above the Fed’s 2% inflation target rate.
