Information Returns


All individuals, corporations, partnerships, estates and trusts connected with a trade or business, making reportable transactions during the fiscal year, have to submit information returns to report the transactions to the Internal Revenue Service. Individuals required to prepare information returns to the IRS have also to provide statements to the counter party to the transactions, to recipients of income.

What Is Information Tax Return?

Forms that have to be filled out by business entities and contain details about their income from any transaction are called Information Tax Returns. Any person engaged in any sort of business or trade who makes transactions (including individuals, corporations, partnerships, trusts and estates) has to file an information return that contains information about each of these transactions to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) during the calendar year.

In case if you are required to file returns to the IRS, you also need to provide statements to the other party of the transaction, i.e. recipient of income.

Some of the most frequent payments reported on each form are listed below:

  1. general;
  2. health insurance;
  3. education;
  4. retirement;
  5. transfers of stock.
