Resources for Filing Your Tax Return

When filing your tax returns, you may need one or more of the following.

Navy Federal Tax ID: 530116705

IRS Form 1099

If you need to show dividend earnings or other IRS Form 1099 information, we mailed it to you by the end of January. You can also view it 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 dividend earnings and other IRS Form 1099 information you'll need for your 2020 tax return will appear in the Tax Documents section.

IRS Form 1098

IRS Form 1098 (Mortgage Interest Statement) can help to show the amount of interest, points or mortgage insurance premiums you paid on your mortgage loan. You may be able to use these expenses as deductions.1

To access your IRS Form 1098:

  1. Sign in to Navy Federal online banking. 
  2. Click Statements on the top right of the page. 
  3. Click the arrow to expand your mortgage or equity statement.  
  4. Select the year within 1098 statements to open the document as a PDF. 

Note: If your loan is a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) or was paid in full during 2020, your IRS Form 1098 will be posted as its own statement dated Jan. 1, 2021 instead of being attached to your monthly 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 weren't 59½.

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

Required Minimum Distributions

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

Non-beneficiary IRAs. The 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.
