2016 Tax Reporting Information
Investment companies sometimes re-characterize income after year-end, which may result in your custodian having to issue revised Forms 1099. For this reason, if you plan on filing by this year’s April 18 deadline, your tax preparer may recommend that you wait until late March to ensure that you have the complete data.
Capital Gains and Losses: These are reported on the Form 1099 from your custodian.
Management Fees: Forms 1099 from the custodian will include management fees paid to Advisors Capital Management from your taxable accounts, which may be deductible on your tax return. If your management fees were paid from more than one taxable account, this information will be shown on each of the 1099s from which fees were paid.
If any of your management fees were debited from tax-deferred accounts such as an IRA, they will not appear on the Forms 1099; such fees are not deductible.
If applicable, Forms 1099 will also include other expenses paid out of your taxable accounts such as custodian fees and margin interest, which may also be deductible.
If applicable, Forms 1099 also report foreign taxes paid out of your taxable account during the year together with disclosure of gross foreign income.
Schedule K-1: Investors in ACM’s Income with Growth Strategy may have held investments in limited partnerships. Each investor’s share of the partnership’s income, deductions and credits, etc. are reported on Schedule K-1 (Form 1065), which are distributed separately from Form 1099. For partnerships with a December, 31 fiscal year, these tax reporting forms are due by March 15. Investors in Income with Growth should schedule appointments with their tax preparer later in March to allow for the distribution of K-1s.
