  • Form W–2 – Wage and Tax Statement - The form that an employer must send to an employee and the IRS at the end of the year. Reports an employee's annual wages and the amount of taxes withheld from his or her paycheck.

  • Form 1099 – Int- The form issued by all payers of interest income to investors at year's end. Form 1099-INT breaks down all types of interest income and related expenses. Payers must issue Form 1099-INTs for any party to whom they paid at least $10 of interest during the year.

  • Form 1040- The standard Internal Revenue Service (IRS) form that individuals use to file their annual income tax returns. Contains sections that require taxpayers to disclose their financial income status for the year in order to ascertain whether additional taxes are owed or whether the taxpayer is due for a tax refund. 1040 forms need to be filed with the IRS by April 15.
