We wanted to pass on some important Investment Tax Form Dates for the Companies that support DALA Financial Services

All dates are based on the 2023 calendar year—some dates may vary and are subject to change. Clients enrolled in paperless delivery will received their documents the moment they're ready

Common tax questions

Why are some 1099s sent in late January/early February and others sent in mid-to-late February?

Each custodian determines the timing they send 1099s and revisions are common as new information is received from certain mutual fund issuers; a client who receives a 1099 in January might receive a revised 1099 a few weeks—or months—later.

Late reporting that generally results in a revised 1099 usually includes the reclassification of Ordinary Dividends to Return of Capital (non-dividend distributions), other dividend classifications, and/or Foreign Tax Paid on a fund's foreign source of income.

AssetMark Trust issues 1099s in late February to provide clients with the most complete tax information and reduce the frequency of revisions to 1099s. Unfortunately, there's no guarantee that a client will not receive a revised 1099, but there are steps they can take to make tax filing and managing tax documents easier.

What can I do to avoid revised returns?

Tax preparers usually advise that clients wait until mid-March or early April to prepare tax returns to reduce unplanned revisions. It's also recommended that clients choose paperless delivery on tax documents where applicable, so they have easy 24/7 access to the most up-to-date documents and don't have to store and secure paper documents or wait around for the mail.

On December 23, 2022 the Federal government passed the Secure 2.0 Act, new legislation aimed at strengthening the retirement system and helping bolster Americans’ financial readiness for retirement. Some key features of the Secure 2.0 Act include increasing the age at which retirees must begin taking required minimum distributions (RMDs) from IRA and 401(k) accounts and changes to the size of catch-up contributions for older workers with workplace plans

2023 Contribution Limit Increases

  • Traditional IRA and Roth Contribution limits have increased from $6,000 to $6,500. Those who are 50 and over still have a $1,000 contribution catch-up limit.
  • The basic salary deferral amount for 401(k) and similar workplace plans is $22,500, with a $7,500 catch-up amount for those 50 or older.
  • Contributions an employer can make to an employee's SEP-IRA cannot exceed the lesser of 25% of the employee's compensation or $66,000 for 2023, an increase from $61,000 in 2022.
  • The amount individuals can contribute to their SIMPLE retirement accounts is increased to $15,500. For employees age 50 or over, a $3,500 catch-up contribution is also allowed.
  • The contribution limit for employees who participate in 401(k), 403(b), most 457 plans and the federal government's Thrift Savings Plan(TSP) will increase to $22,500. It will increase to $30,000 in 2023 for those age 50 or older.
  • Additional information on 2023 changes for retirement plan contributions can be found on the IRS website.

Notable RMD Changes

  • The age at which retirement account owners must begin taking RMDs has increased from 72 to 73, effective in 2023. Investors who turned 72 in 2022 or earlier will need to continue to take RMDs as scheduled. If a client turned 72 in 2022 and delayed their RMD until 2023, they are still required to take it by April 1, 2023, plus take their 2023 distribution in 2023.
  • Starting in 2023, RMD penalties for those who fail to take their distribution will decrease from 50% to 25% of the RMD amount not taken. The penalty is reduced to 10% for IRA owners if corrective action is taken in a timely manner.
  • Starting in 2024, Roth accounts held in employer retirement plans will be exempt from RMD requirements.
  • The Secure 2.0 Act will eventually increase RMD age to 75 in 2033.
