Tax Reporting: Return of Capital (ROC) in an Account

IB will report ROC distributions to shareholders as nontaxable distributions on Form 1099-DIV, "Dividends and Distributions". Please note that this information is often not available until after the initial 1099 forms are made available to you. Once the information is available IB will issue corrected 1099s to you. We suggest that you check your tax forms in Account Management – Tax Forms prior to filing your return to verify that you have used the most current information.
