U.S.A.: Issuance of final Form 1042-S


Clearstream Banking1 would like to inform customers that the final version of the 2019 IRS Form 1042-S has been issued.

Please be advised:

  • Section 871(m) of the Internal Revenue Code:  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: the data is not included in Form 1042-S as the information has not yet been communicated to Clearstream Banking. Another version of final IRS 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.

Note: Detailed information regarding the tax treatment, reclassification and reporting of REIT and RIC instruments may be found on the website under Tax Treatment of U.S. REITs and RICs.
