Reporting Investment Income from Bonds

Course Description:

The consolidated 1099 statement our clients receive from their brokers ranges from the simple to the painfully complex. The best way to deal with a consolidated 1099 is to break it down into pieces! This webinar covers the 1099-INT and the 1099-OID.

Reporting bond income is more complex than many tax preparers realize. There are many different varieties of bonds and many of them require special tax treatment.

If the bond was purchased at a discount or at a premium, accretion and amortization may need to be reported. Original issue discount bonds and zero-coupon bonds have their own set of complications. We’ll also cover reporting income from mutual funds that include municipal bonds. 


  1. Describe the components of a consolidated 1099 statement and explain why it varies in complexity.
  2. List the key elements of a 1099-INT and a 1099-OID form, highlighting their significance in tax reporting.
  3. Explain the complexities involved in reporting income from various types of bonds and recognize the need for specialized tax treatment.
