Investments & taxes 101
The federal government taxes investment income (such as interest and dividends) and realized capital gains. M1 uses built-in tax efficiency to help reduce the amount owed on taxes automatically, but you’ll still need to file a few forms with the rest of your taxes by Thursday, April 15 in accordance with the IRS tax code.
Important dates to remember
|February 1||1099-INT: Used to report any interest earned as income (M1 Plus members only).|
|February 1||1099-R: Used to report distributions from Traditional, Roth and SEP IRAs.|
|February 16||Consolidated 1099: Used to report taxable events on your individual or joint account.|
|April 1||IRA recharacterizations are due: IRA recharacterizations must be processed by April 15, so please submit any requests here by end of day on April 1 to guarantee completion.|

Please note, not every M1 client will receive tax documents. The documents you’ll receive depend on the type of M1 account(s) you have. Document notifications will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org, and all documents will be available in your M1 account under Settings > Documents.
