Seven corrections on Vanguard tax information statements

Post by informal guide » Thu Apr 20, 2017 11:02 am

This year I received seven different corrections on my lengthy Vanguard brokerage tax information statement - -literally more than 300 pages of wasted postage and paper for 1-2 insignificant changes (such as a $1 difference in a tax-exempt bond premium). Each week another one seemed to arrive. I had no corrections from Fidelity.

Any one else have this problem, or am I an anomaly?

You still have to work through it all to find the changes. Not so easy on the computer. But the real problem is the corrections themselves. I did my taxes, had TT import, then after filing got another correction negating the first correction. Trivial issue with non-covered security (maybe $10 effect on taxes) so I ignored it. But why can't VG get their act together?
