LPL’s tax mailing schedule at a glance

1099 Consolidated Tax Statements are mailed between January and March to ensure you receive it as early as possible and meet all IRS deadlines, while reducing the need to mail a corrected 1099. Check your notifications weekly, as each week LPL will provide a list of client whose 1099 has become available and mailed. You can access the clients tax forms in ClientWorks under the Statements tab and selecting Tax Forms under Standard Quick Views.

Here’s a breakdown of the forms, mailing dates, and deadlines you can expect for the 2023 tax year followed by some common questions you may have as an investor.

Haven’t received your Consolidated 1099 by mid-February?

Investing clients with LPL advisors have until March 15 to receive their consolidated 1099.

Not sure how or where to view your tax documents?

Investing clients with LPL advisors have two options for receiving their tax documents: in mail, or through our paperless option (eDelivery). Those who have opted in for eDelivery, can simply login to Account View with the appropriate credentials and view their tax documents.
