Tax Forms

UECU will send each member only those tax forms that are specific to their account(s). The following are forms UECU issues related to dividend income and interest payments:

  • 1099-INT - Most members will receive an Interest Income Statement sent to individuals who earned dividends of $10.00 or more during the tax year (the form is issued by the end of January). UECU also issues forms related to interest income for specific account types: the 1099-Q (for qualified Education Savings Programs), 1099-SA (for distributions from a Health Savings Account), and 1099-R (which reports distributions from an IRA or retirement plan).
     
  • 1098 - A 1098 mortgage interest tax form reports the interest paid by an individual on real estate loan(s) during the tax year. UECU mails mortgage interest forms for home equity fixed term and home equity line of credit loans. A form will only be generated if the amount paid on a single loan exceeds $0. The 1098 mortgage interest tax forms for mortgages obtained through UECU are handled through third parties that purchased your mortgage. They are responsible for sending you the 1098 mortgage interest tax form. Please contact them directly for additional information.

While paper tax forms are available, now UECU members don't have to wait to receive their tax forms in the mail. UECU offers Tax E-Forms (as well as Member E-Statements and Visa® E-Statements) to provide you secure, electronic access to your tax forms the instant they are available - from wherever you are.

Why didn't I receive a 1099 form for my share account(s) this year?

UECU is not required to report earned dividends under $10 to the IRS. Therefore, if you keep a very limited average balance in your share account(s), UECU may not need to generate a 1099 form for your account. 1099 forms are mailed to members by the last day of January each year. Additionally, to access any available tax forms generated for your account, you may sign up for Tax E-Forms on Advantages OnlineTM by selecting Services, then E-Statements.

When is the 1098 mortgage Interest form for loans mailed?

A financial institution has until the last day of January to mail the 1098 tax form reporting the year's interest paid by an individual on real estate loan(s). UECU mails mortgage interest forms for home equity fixed term and home equity line of credit loans. A form will only be generated if the amount paid on a single loan exceeds $0. The 1098 mortgage interest tax forms for mortgages obtained through UECU are handled through third parties that purchased your mortgage.
