I came here to ask the same question someone already asked and the answer is Feb. 15th, or possibly as late as the 28th about receiving 1099 forms.

I thought all financial institutions were required to have all their 1099 forms in the mail by January 31 every year.
We are missing one 1099 form each from Merrill Lynch and Fidelity, both happen to be accounts where items were sold in 2012.

My question is did brokerages always have until Feb. 15 or did the lateness of the new tax law passed by Congress on New Year's Day cause the delay to Feb. 15 and this date is in effect for 2012 tax reporting only?
