2017 Tax forms for brokerage delayed till end of February

Post by AnotherSandwich » Mon Jan 22, 2018 12:30 pm

Upgraded to brokerage accounts this year. Got an email today saying I should expect separate tax form by the end of February. Seems way too long. Tax forms for old accounts are arriving much sooner (some already available).

Is this normal for VG to delay tax forms till the end of February? Do they actually arrive sooner?

Most brokerage firms issue tax statements in late February - mid-March. This is typical.
