As mandated under the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, the IRS changed the deadline for mailing brokerage tax forms to Feb. 15. In an effort to reduce the number of corrected tax forms a member may receive, NFS requests an extension from the IRS that allows for mailing 1099 tax statements beyond the mid-February date for accounts holding certain mutual funds or certain complex securities, including unit investment trusts and real estate mortgage investment conduits.

Most brokerage tax forms for the prior tax year will be available online between mid-January and mid-February. They are mailed shortly after that.

April 15 is the date Federal tax returns are due to the IRS.

Cost basis reporting
Thrivent provides you with important cost basis information to help you calculate your capital gain or loss for tax purposes when you sell shares in nonretirement accounts.

Consult with your tax advisor for help in determining which cost basis method is best for you. Once you provide us with your cost basis election, we will track cost basis for your account using the method of your choice and provide you with the information needed to complete your tax return when you sell your investments. This can save you time and expense when completing your tax returns. IRS regulations also require that we report the cost basis information to the IRS on Form 1099-B for tax purposes.

You can receive complete cost basis information for investments purchased on or after the following dates:
  • Jan. 1, 2011, for equity securities (i.e., common and preferred stock).
  • Jan. 1, 2012, for mutual funds and dividend reinvestment plans.
  • Jan. 1, 2014, for debt securities (including exchange-traded notes) and options.

Thrivent will provide current cost basis information when available for investments that you purchased prior to the dates above. This is for your convenience and will not be reported to the IRS.

Learn more about the cost basis calculation options available for NFS Brokerage Accounts.
