ING Direct Tax Forms Available Now

This article was written by in Taxes. 6 comments.


I just checked my ING Direct savings account and noticed that the bank has its customers’ tax forms ready to download now.

Banks are required to generate 1099-INT forms, which report the amount of interest earned, for anyone who has accumulated more than $10 in interest throughout the year. I love the convenience of obtaining these forms online rather than in the mail. I simply save the reports as Adobe Acrobat files (PDFs) into a directory on my computer where I keep all of my tax information.

I would expect other banks to have tax forms for 2007 ready shortly. The more I can keep digitally, the better.

You can retrieve your ING Direct tax forms by logging into your account and clicking on “1098/1099 Tax Forms” while viewing your account overview.

My HSBC Online Savings Account distributed the 1099-INT with the last statement that covers some part of Dec 2007. So HSBC customers may want to check their latest statements for the “Important Tax Documents Included” line.

How did you save the ING’s 1099 as PDF? I didn’t see an option to do so unless you have a PDF writer..

In addition to convenience, it’s nice from a security point of view since the 1099′s usually include your SSN. I’m always worried that the mailman will deliver the 1099 to the wrong address.

Ken: Excellent point. There is more of a chance of someone coming in contact with your SSN through the mail than through encrypted web connections.

Flexo, I agree with the sentiment “the more I can keep digitally, the better.”

Do you also download other types of financial documents? Have you figured out an easy way to organize the digital documents that you do download?

Ken I agree with your comments about digital downloading being more secure. Have either of you found a simple way to securely share your documents with a profesional tax preparer?

Can you please explain where the information contained in the 1099 form is to be entered while doing online tax returns for 2011?

Thanks.
