I have been with eTrade for many years, since long before they were "eTrade". On 12 FEb 2019, I received an email from them which reads in part

Just a quick heads-up that a Form 1099 tax document for your E*TRADE Securities brokerage account is in the mail. You can also view and print an official copy now in the E*TRADE Tax Center (log on required).

The snailmail has not yet arrived but meanwhile I downloaded the 1099 pdf and appropriate IRS and state forms and begun preparing my taxes.

As eTrade receives more info over the coming weeks between now and 15April, and maybe even after 15April, they will issue revised 1099s as appropriate. For instance, in tax year 2015, thers were three corrected 1099s.

Therefore, in anticipation of these possible delays, I usually submit a request to the IRS for an extension of time to file. Not a big deal.
