I recently logged into my TD Ameritrade account to access the most recent Form 1099. It isn’t ready yet (for more on the availability of different forms, see at the end of this article), but there are already tax deals to help prepare the 2020 tax returns (fr the 2021 tax season).
This is the time of the year when many companies are teaming up with tax software providers to offer its customers additional discount. The deals vary from one company to another, but TD Ameritrade offers the following:
- Free Edition – free filing
- Deluxe – $10 off
- Premier – $15 off
- Self-Employed – $20 off
Anyone invested in the stock market will at minimum need the Premier version of TurboTax.
Reporting investment gains or losses in the past was quite burdensome, especially for those who traded often. It required manually entering the entire trading history for that year (i.e., purchase price, sale price, dividends, etc.) Today, TurboTax imports that information from your broker and accounts accurately for everything that happened during the investment period, which often may have taken more than one year. The process is now automated and is just as straight forward as importing information on any other aspect of your financial life, such as wages earned, or mortgage details, just to name a few. In fact, TD Ameritrade even has a knowledge section on how to import you tax data into TurboTax, H&R Block, and TaxAct.
