Q. How do you determine if a tax form needs to be issued?

A. 1099-INT and 1098 forms are issued based on guidelines established by the IRS. (For example: If the dividends received on all of your accounts combine to equal at least $10, you will receive a 1099-INT form.).


Q. Will I receive my tax form(s) in the mail or via Digital Banking?

 A. All tax forms will be mailed as well as posted electronically in Digital Banking (Online Banking and the Mobile Banking app).

If you would like to view your form(s) electronically but have not enrolled in Digital Banking, please set up a User ID and password by selecting "Enroll Now" on the Online Banking or Mobile Banking Login/Enroll screen.


Q. Where do I find my tax forms in Digital Banking?

 A. In Online Banking, click on “View eStatements” in the Quick Links box. In the Mobile Banking app, tap on the menu icon in the top right corner and scroll down to “eStatements” under Finance Management. Tax statements are available under the Documents tab as long as you have signed up for eStatements and accepted the electronic disclosure. 


Q. For Joint accounts, will both members get tax forms?

 A. No. Tax forms are issued based on the Tax Identification Number on the account (typically the “Primary” account holder’s TIN).

Paper tax forms are mailed to the Primary account holder and, similarly, eTax forms are provided in Digital Banking to the Primary account holder. Joint members cannot see eTax forms for Primary account holders unless the Primary account holder is a minor.


Q. Why didn’t I receive a separate 1099-INT for the interest earned on my mortgage escrow account?

A. For 2022, we were able to aggregate mortgage escrow account interest with the interest earned on other Credit Union accounts, so there is no need for a separate 1099-INT.
