How to read your 1099-R and 5498
The Form 1099-R is required by the IRS for distributions received from individual retirement accounts (IRAs), such as with Robinhood Securities.
In conjunction with the Form 1099-R for distributions, you may also get a Form 5498 for contributions made into an IRA. If a Roth conversion is completed with Robinhood, you’ll get a 1099-R for the money leaving the Traditional IRA and a Form 5498 for the money moving into the Roth IRA. The IRS instructions for Forms 1099-R and 5498 have more details.
The IRS deadline for Robinhood to send your tax forms is January 31 for Form 1099-R and May 31 for Form 5498 for this tax year.
