During the 2023 tax season, in order to meet all IRS deadlines, reduce errors, and reduce the need to mail corrected versions, LPL will be mailing the 1099 Consolidated Tax Statements in weekly phases (see below for schedule). LPL follows all standard protocols and executes processes similar to other major financial firms by mailing in waves as they receive information from various institutions. For certain security types, final tax information from the bank, institution, or other type of issuer may be received after the standard deadline, resulting in your statement not arriving on the anticipated February mailing date. This information is not intended to be a substitute for specific individualized tax advice. We suggest that you discuss your specific tax issues with a qualified tax advisor.

Why did some clients receive a 1099-Consolidated this year when they didn’t receive one last year?You may have received a 1099-Consolidated this year because they received more than $10 in taxable income in the form of Dividends, Interest, or Proceeds from sales.
I didn’t receive a 1099-R. Why?If you didn’t receive a 1099-R, there were no reportable distributions in their account in 2023. A 1099-R will be issued when the account has a reportable distribution within the tax year.
Why are there different mailing dates for 1099 Consolidated Statements?LPL will mail 1099 consolidated tax statements weekly as information is received from various institutions. For certain security types, final tax information from the bank, institution, or other type of issuer may be received after the standard deadline, resulting in your statement not arriving on the anticipated February mailing date.
Preliminary 1099 Consolidated Tax Statement: What is it and what do I need to know?A preliminary 1099 Consolidated Tax Form Statement is an advanced one-time draft copy of your 1099 tax forms.
