Your Navy Federal Tax Information

When filing your tax returns, you may need two types of forms from us: Form 1099 and Form 1098

Form 1099

If you need to show dividend earnings or other 1099 information, we’ll mail what you need by Jan. 31. You can also view your Form 1099 information through digital banking.

  • Mobile App:* Sign in and tap More in the bottom right of the screen, then tap Tax Statements.
  • Online: Sign in and click the Statements link in the blue banner at the top of the screen. The current tax year’s form will be listed to view or download. You can also locate your year-end tax information at the bottom of your January statement details.

Form 1098

Form 1098 (Mortgage Interest Statement) is helpful to show you paid interest, points or mortgage insurance premiums as you may be able to use these expenses as deductions.1

To access your Form 1098:

  1. Sign in to Navy Federal online banking. 
  2. Select Statements in the top menu bar. 
  3. Select the arrow on the account to expand the category of statements you'd like to view.  
  4. Select your January 2021 statement to open the document as a PDF. 
  5. Scroll to the end of your statement; the 2020 Form 1098 will be attached as the last page. 

Note: If your loan was paid in full during 2020, your 1098 will still be posted as a January statement. 

CARES Act Changes in 2020 That May Have Affected You

In an effort to support businesses and individuals in the wake of COVID-19, Congress passed an aid package known as the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act of 2020 (CARES Act).

New provisions of the legislation may have affected your retirement (IRA) and/or education (ESA) savings accounts. Here’s what you need to know.

Withdrawals/Distributions

You may have been able to withdraw up to $100,000 between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2020 without paying a 10 percent early withdrawal penalty, even if you were not 59½.

Income taxes for this distribution will still be due, but you can pay them over 3 years.

Required Minimum Distributions

You did not have to take the 2020 Required Minimum Distributions (RMD) from defined contribution plans, IRAs or Beneficiary IRAs.

Non-beneficiary IRAs. The RMD waiver also applied to those who turned 70½ in 2019, but didn’t take their RMD before Jan. 1, 2020.

If you elected a 5-year payout period from your beneficiary IRA, the year 2020 won’t be counted for the 5-year payout period. However, the required beginning date for the years following 2020 won’t change. Beneficiary RMD waiver
