SEI Tax Mailing Schedule For 2017 (1099s)

SEI Tax Mailing Schedule For 2017 (1099s)


As custodian of your SEI investment account, SEI Private Trust Company (SPTC) is responsible for preparing and issuing the appropriate tax forms for your account. SPTC will mail the 1099 Composite Forms (and the accompanying Agent/Custodian Tax Information letter) for the 2017 tax year to you during early March 2018.

Deadline: Postmarked by March 15, 2018

As a result of recent changes enacted in The Energy Improvement and Extension Act, final reporting deadlines for the money managers utilized in your account have been extended to February 15, 2018, in turn allowing us to postmark the 1099 Composite Forms up to March 15, 2018.  Because of this extended deadline, 1099 Composite Forms will be postmarked by February 28, 2018.  You benefit by:

  • Reduced confusion, given that you will likely receive one tax form instead of potentially receiving multiple versions.
  • Being able to plan for tax-return preparation based on knowing when you will   receive final tax data from SPTC.

The 1099 Composite includes the following 1099 Combined Forms

  • 1099-B, Proceeds from Broker and Barter Exchange Transactions
  • 1099-DIV, Dividends and Distributions
  • 1099-INT, Interest Income
  • 1099-OID, Original Issue Discount
  • 1099-MISC, Royalty Income 

Please note that there is one exception to the scheduling change addressed above.  SPTC will postmark the 1099-R Forms (Distributions from Pensions, Annuities, Retirement or Profit Sharing Plans, and IRA’s) by January 31, 2018.

Corrected 1099 Forms Will Be Mailed as Needed

You may receive a corrected Form 1099. There are several reasons for this – for example, issuers of securities held in your account may provide updated or additional information after your Form 1099 is mailed to you. The IRS requires financial organizations to send corrected forms with revised information as it becomes available.

Reminder: Electronic Delivery of Form 1099

Enrolling in e-delivery will provide faster access to your tax statements.

New Privacy Procedures

As part of our continued effort to protect your privacy and personal information, we will again be masking your recipient identifying number on paper statements for calendar year 2017. The first five digits of identifying numbers will be replaced with asterisks or the letter x; for example, a social security number will now appear as xxx-xx-1234.  Under IRS guidelines, Employee Identification Numbers or EIN numbers are now eligible to be masked and will also be included to protect privacy.
