What is form 1099-B?

Form 1099 B, Proceeds from Broker and Barter Exchange Transactions, is an IRS form that brokers and barter exchanges must file for every person:

  • To whom they sold assets for cash
  • Who earned money, stocks, or equivalent property from a corporation that has had its stock acquired in an acquisition of control or had a substantial change in capital structure
  • Who exchanged assets or services through a barter exchange.

Who should file 1099-B?

Brokers and barter exchanges file the form to report profits from transactions to the IRS and you (for tax filing purposes). It is filed for each transaction separately (except for regulated futures, foreign currency, or Section 1256 option contracts filed on an aggregate basis). Individuals must take into account 1099-B when filing their tax returns.

You must report the total amount of the proceeds, as well as your basis (what was paid for securities plus brokerage fees or other transaction costs).
