When you file your taxes, you don’t need to attach copies of the 1099-INT forms you receive, but you do need to report the information from the forms on your tax return. That’s because each bank, financial institution or other entity that pays you at least $10 of interest during the year must:
- prepare a 1099-INT,
- send you a copy by January 31, and
- file a copy with the IRS.
The IRS uses the information on the 1099-INT to ensure you report the correct amount of interest income on your tax return.
Form 1099-INT will be under Wages and Income and then Investments and savings.
If the import does not work, please look down to the lower right and select Enter a different way, as shown below. You might need to scroll down to see it.
Then, click on the box that says 1099-INT and on the next screen click on the box that says Type it in myself.
