What are covered and non-covered shares?

  • Covered shares are shares purchased on or after January 1, 2012. Tax Form 1099-B will provide cost basis information for covered shares to both the shareholder and the IRS.
  • Non-covered shares are shares purchased by a shareholder on or before December 31, 2011. Non-covered shares will continue to be reported as they have in the past – only the gross proceeds will be reported to the IRS.
