U.S.A.: Issuance of 2021 IRS Form 1042-S


Clearstream Banking1 would like to inform customers that it has issued IRS Form 1042-S to the recipients of U.S. taxable income in 2021.

Customers should take note of the following information:

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