Clearstream Banking1 would like to inform customers that it has issued IRS Form 1042-S to the recipients of U.S. taxable income in 2020.

Impact on customers

Section 871(m) of the Internal Revenue Code

Customers should be advised that the data included in Form 1042-S was solely determined based on the information reported by the domestic and common depositories to Clearstream Banking.

The reclassification of income from Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) and Regulated Investment Company (RIC) instruments

Customers should be advised that the data is not included in Form 1042-S as the information has not yet been communicated to Clearstream Banking. An amended Form 1042-S, together with a list of all instruments and related reclassified income, will be sent out at a later stage to customers that hold REITs and RICs.
