Year-End Tax Forms
Members who qualify based on dividends earned or mortgage interest paid will receive separate forms before January 31 for tax-reporting purposes. Those holding IRAs, CESAs, and/or HSAs will receive individual IRS reporting forms. Contact your tax advisor for more information.
Duplicate tax-reporting forms are available for a small fee should you misplace these documents. Contact Liberty at 1 (833) 226-4007, Ext. 1284, for further information.
