What is a Form 1099-DIV?

Created by Anil Kumar Kumar Kotla, Modified on Wed, 24 Jan 2024 at 04:57 AM by Anil Kumar Kumar Kotla

A Form 1099-DIV is used by banks and other financial institutions to report dividends and other distributions. If you receive dividends from investments, it’s likely that you may receive a consolidated 1099 form from your bank or brokerage. A consolidated Form 1099 may combine up to five separate 1099 forms (1099-B, 1099-DIV, 1099-INT, 1099-MISC, and 1099-OID) into one tax reporting document and will show your reportable income and transactions for the tax year from the issuer.


Here’s a quick explanation of the main boxes on the form:

Boxes 1a and 1b:  dividends reported if you hold investments (some dividends may show as income in boxes 2a and 5).

Box 4: Any related federal taxes withheld.

Boxes 14-16: any state taxes withheld.


Please note that Beem does support boxes 7-8 for foreign tax paid up to $600 if married filing jointly ($300 for all others). More information about what each of these boxes mean can be found here
