Annual tax documents will be available no later than January 31st for the previous calendar year. LendingClub will also provide you with a year-end statement which summarizes your account activity, including the amount of interest earned and information regarding Notes corresponding to loans that have reached charge-off status.
A Consolidated Form 1099 will be posted in your LendingClub account's “statements” section and will not be mailed to you, unless you have “opted-out” of electronic delivery of tax documents. If you have opted-out of electronic delivery of tax documents, LendingClub will mail a paper copy of the Consolidated Form 1099 Package to you.
You can “opt-out” of electronic delivery of tax documents by calling Investor Services at 888-596-3159 or emailing email@example.com.
The Consolidated Form 1099 will include all applicable LendingClub tax forms and if applicable, for your reference, Form 1099-B for activity related to your LendingClub notes from your linked FOLIOfn Investments, Inc* (“Folio Investing”) account will be included at the end of the consolidated 1099 package. It is your responsibility to check your account and review all information provided before filing your tax return.
LendingClub will also provide a downloadable Tax Guide with information about the data reported on the Consolidated Form 1099 and alert you via email when the tax documents have been posted in your account. To learn more about what documents LendingClub issues, see Are earnings on LendingClub Notes taxable?
