Gathering Information to Prepare Form 1099-DIV

Before you prepare Form 1099-DIV, you will need tax information for the payer and payee, as well as the amounts paid to the payee.

A. Payer Information

You will need to include the following information on each form you prepare.

  • Federal Identification Number
  • Payer Name
  • Payer Address

B. Payee Information

You will need to include the following information on each form you prepare.

  • Payee Tax Identification Number (TIN)
  • Payee Name
  • Payee Address
  • Account Number (Only required if Payee/Recipient has multiple accounts for which you are filing more than one form or if selecting “FATCA filing requirement” box. Otherwise, optional.)

C. Payment Amounts

The IRS instructs that a 1099-DIV form must be completed each person who, in the previous tax year, has been paid for certain amounts. It is recommended to view the IRS instructions for the amount types and their corresponding box number, as these are susceptible to change year to year.
