Why did I receive multiple tax documents?

Depending on the dates of your trading activity last year, you may receive more than one Form 1099 from Robinhood. If you traded cryptocurrencies last year, you may also receive an additional Form 1099 from Robinhood Crypto, LLC. Here is how to know which forms you will receive:

  • Apex IRS Form 1099: If you had a taxable event (for example, you sold equities or options, received a referral stock, or received dividends) prior to November 9th, you will receive a Form 1099 from our former clearing partner, Apex Clearing Corp (“Apex”).
  • Robinhood Securities IRS Form 1099: If you had a taxable event between November 10th and December 31st, you will receive a Form 1099 from Robinhood Securities, LLC, our new clearing platform.
  • Robinhood Crypto IRS Form 1099: If you sold cryptocurrencies in 2018, you will receive separate PDF and CSV files of your Form 1099 from Robinhood Crypto, LLC for crypto activity in 2018.
  • Corrected Forms: If you received an updated or amended Form 1099 tax document, please make sure that you’ve filed your taxes in accordance with this updated information.This may require re-filing your taxes.
Note

Please update to the latest version of the app for 2019 tax season. We made changes to the app to improve the tax experience and we don’t want you to miss out on them.

How to know which form is which

The best way to see which entity issued your tax documents is to check the top, left corner on the first page of your tax document.

Apex IRS Form 1099: This form will say Apex Clearing in the top, left corner of the first page.

Robinhood Securities IRS Form 1099: This form will say Robinhood Securities LLC in the top, left corner of the first page.

Robinhood Crypto IRS Form 1099: This form will say Robinhood Crypto LLC in the top, left corner of the first page, and the first page will be mostly blank.

Importing Trade History to TurboTax

The import experience will be slightly different for each type of 1099, mentioned in the above article. We will take you step-by-step for each tax document type here.

Apex Clearing Form 1099 (Ready February 20th)

  1. After logging into TurboTax, navigate to the screen to start filling out the form for 1099-INT or 1099-DIV in the Wages & Income section.

I executed a lot of trades. Can I still use TurboTax?

Investors should consider the investment objectives and unique risk profile of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) carefully before investing. ETFs are subject to risks similar to those of other diversified portfolios. Leveraged and Inverse ETFs may not be suitable for all investors and may increase exposure to volatility through the use of leverage, short sales of securities, derivatives and other complex investment strategies.
Although ETFs are designed to provide investment results that generally correspond to the performance of their respective underlying indices, they may not be able to exactly replicate the performance of the indices because of expenses and other factors. A prospectus contains this and other information about the ETF and should be read carefully before investing. Customers should obtain prospectuses from issuers and/or their third party agents who distribute and make prospectuses available for review. ETFs are required to distribute portfolio gains to shareholders at year end. These gains may be generated by portfolio rebalancing or the need to meet diversification requirements. ETF trading will also generate tax consequences. Additional regulatory guidance on Exchange Traded Products can be found by clicking here.
Options transactions may involve a high degree of risk. To learn more about the risks associated with options trading, please review the options disclosure document entitled Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options, available here or through https://www.theocc.com/about/publications/character-risks.jsp.

There is always the potential of losing money when you invest in securities, or other financial products. Investors should consider their investment objectives and risks carefully before investing.
Trading in cryptocurrencies comes with significant risks, including volatile market price swings or flash crashes, market manipulation, and cybersecurity risks.

Several federal agencies have also published advisory documents surrounding the risks of virtual currency.
