US tax documents FAQ

How do I access my tax documents?

You can find your US tax documents with these steps:

  1. Select Account (person icon)
  2. Select Menu (3 bars) or Settings
  3. Go to Tax center
  4. Select a form to review its details

Why do I have multiple tax documents?

You may get multiple tax documents if any necessary corrections are applicable to your tax form from Robinhood.

Why didn’t I get a tax document or see NRA withholding?

If you received less than $0.50 in US-sourced income, you won’t receive a tax document. Non-US sourced dividends (paid by non-US companies) and most gross proceeds from sell trades are not reported on a Form 1042-S. If you were charged less than $0.50 in NRA (non-resident alien) withholding, you won’t see the withholding on your tax form.

What’s a reportable tax event?

Any transaction that results in US-sourced income or NRA withholding that is reportable to the IRS (Internal Revenue Service, the tax authority of the US) will generate a tax form. Examples of US-sourced income that is subject to IRS reporting are:

  • Dividends
  • Miscellaneous Income (reward or incentive payments)
  • Interest Income

Do stock rewards and cash incentives affect my taxes?

If you receive free stocks or receive any cash incentives, it will be reported as US-sourced income. These stock or cash rewards will be reported as other or miscellaneous income on form 1042-S and would be subject to 30% NRA withholding.

Why is income or NRA withholding reported to the IRS?

Robinhood Securities LLC (US entity) is required by IRS regulations to report any US-sourced income received by non-US persons. The IRS rules also require NRA withholding on certain US-sourced income received by non-US persons.
