Which type of tax documents should I expect?
Depending on the type of account(s) you have
with Swell, you should expect the following document(s):
For a Swell Flexible account (standard taxable account) with dividends or
realized gains/losses, Folio Investments will post a Consolidated 1099. Please
note that some taxable accounts will have 2 Consolidated 1099s this year.
For any IRAs (Traditional, Roth, or SEP) with any
distributions/withdrawals (meaning that you have reached the age of 59½
and have begun taking money out, or you’ve taken money out early and are
subject to penalties), Folio Investments will post a 1099-R.
For any IRAs with contributions/deposits, Folio Investments will
post a form 5498 (this won't be available until late
May 2020 because you can contribute to an IRA through mid-April). Please note
that a Form 5498 is for informational purposes only. You are not required to
file it with your tax return.
