Target Due Date: The mutual fund and brokerage community has requested that this information be submitted no later than Tuesday, January 16, 2018. REITs that require additional time to prepare the data may choose to communicate with the entities that have requested REIT year-end tax reporting information to arrange an alternative due date and to determine whether to send partial information as it becomes available.
Please use the online spreadsheet available at the “Tax Forms” link after logging in to the reit.com website or through the email link sent by firstname.lastname@example.org to submit your Form 1099-DIV data. Do not email us this completed form. Please refer to the instructions for further details.
In addition, Nareit reminds you to complete and file Form 8937, Report of Organizational Actions Affecting Basis of Securities, if appropriate (e.g., for return of capital distributions). The instructions to Form 8937 are here. It is not necessary to submit this form to Nareit, but if your company has filed one or more Forms 8937 for the 2017 tax year, it may be helpful to include a link to the form(s) in the “supplementary information” box of your Form 1099-DIV spreadsheet prior to uploading it to reit.com.
Should you have any problems or require assistance, contact us as early as possible, so we may quickly help you to complete your reporting forms and meet the deadline.
