As you prepare to file your taxes this year, we decided to help make your life a little easier. We have compiled a hub for all of the important dates and information you may need to complete your taxes.
Our team here at Pearl Planning is committed to assisting you and your tax professional in gathering the information you will need for your tax return. Do not hesitate to reach out or have your Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and/or tax preparer contact us with questions. Also, for full details on Raymond James tax reporting, here is a link to their information.
Once you have completed your tax return, if you are a client, we would love for you to upload a copy to your Right Capital document vault. This allows us to review your tax return for any financial planning opportunities.

You May Receive Two 2021 Retirement Tax Packages
As a follow up to the 2021 Retirement Tax Package mailing sent to you on January 24th, we wanted to bring attention to those of you who are receiving two 2021 Retirement Tax Packages.
In 2021, Raymond James adjusted their legal custodial name. If you had reportable activity before and after the name change, you will be receiving two 2021 tax packages. The second package is not a duplicate of the first package. Clients must use both tax packages when preparing their tax returns.
- The first package contains reportable activity occurring from January 1, 2021 – September 3, 2021 under the Raymond James & Associates (RJA) custodianship
- The second package will contain reportable activity occurring from September 7, 2021 – December 31, 2021 under the Raymond James Trust Company of New Hampshire (RJTCNH) custodianship.
Pearl Planning is notifying impacted clients. Please feel free to reach out to us if you need any additional clarification.
Qualified Charitable Distributions
We are pleased to inform you that those of you who completed qualified charitable distributions will receive information on them, which will be included with your tax forms.
Delayed Form 1099s
In an effort to control amended 1099s, Raymond James currently expects to delay the mailing of 1099s that meet the following criteria:
- 1099s for accounts that hold securities that have not 100% reallocated or could potentially have income reallocation such as mutual funds, real estate investment trusts, unit investment trusts, exchange-traded funds, holding company depository receipts and select equity securities
- 1099s for accounts that hold Original Issue Discount (OID) bonds, including select municipal bonds
- 1099s for accounts that hold specific 45-day delay mortgage-backed securities, which are reportable based on the record date (i.e. record on 12/31, payable on 2/15)
- Specific expected cost basis adjustments
Amended Form 1099s
Even after delaying your Form 1099, please be aware that adjustments to it are still possible. Raymond James is required by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to produce an amended Form 1099 if notice of such an adjustment is received after the original has been produced. There is no cutoff or deadline for amended Form 1099 statements. The following are some examples of reasons for amended Form 1099s:
- Income reallocation
- Adjustments to cost basis (due to the Economic Stabilization Act of 2008)
- Changes made by mutual fund companies related to foreign withholding
- Tax-exempt payments subject to alternative minimum tax
- Any portion of distributions derived from U.S. Treasury obligations
What Can You Do?
You should consider talking to your tax professional about whether it makes sense to file an extension with the IRS to give you additional time to file your tax return, particularly if you held any of the aforementioned securities during 2021.
If you receive an amended Form 1099 after you have already filed your tax return, you should consult with your tax professional about the requirements to re-file based on your individual tax circumstances.
As mentioned earlier, you can find additional information at the Raymond James Tax Reporting resource page.
We hope you find this additional information helpful. Please call our office if you have any questions or concerns about the upcoming tax season. We welcome the opportunity to work with your CPA or tax preparer to assist with both tax preparation and tax planning.
