Forms 1099-LS and 1099-SB were born out of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) as part of the Life Settlement reporting section. They were first introduced for the 2019 tax season, and require reporting from both the purchaser and the life insurance carrier when a life insurance policy is sold to a new owner or when a policy transfers to foreign ownership.
Below are the top five challenges life insurers are facing in their first year reporting Forms 1099-LS and 1099-SB:
- Determining what criteria necessitates Form 1099-SB
- Receiving multiple Form 1099-LSs from varying companies for the same policy
- Receiving Form 1099-LSs with incorrect information
- Form 1099-LS received through multiple locations internally
- Lack of clarity on corrections and extensions for Forms 1099-LS and 1099-SB
