IRS Form 1098 Corrections

There were changes in IRS reporting requirements for 2016, one of which was to include the year-end Outstanding Mortgage Principal in Box 2 of 1098 Mortgage Interest Forms. There may have been some  1098 forms produced that do not include a value in Box 2 for the Outstanding Mortgage Principal.  Corrected 1098 forms were scheduled to be mailed February 9, 2017.

The information required in reporting will provide the IRS with additional information about the loan, however in most cases it is not necessarily needed in individual or joint filing of state and federal returns. Please review your filing situation to determine if you need this information in reporting.

Thanks to those of you that noticed something strange in the new 2016 Names and Numbers Phone Book, and contacted us regarding the three incorrect telephone numbers listed for Zia Credit Union. We have reached out to Names and Numbers regarding this, and have requested a correction for next year's phone book.

Notification of 2015 IRA Rollover Rule Change

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has announced that it has changed its position on IRA Rollovers. Beginning January 1, 2015, an IRA owner may make only one rollover from an IRA to another (or the same) IRA in any 12-month period. The limit will apply by aggregating individual's IRAs including SEP and SIMPLE IRAs as well as traditional and Roth IRAs, effectively treating them as one IRA for purposes of this limit.

The following IRA transfers and Rollovers are not limited:

  • Trustee-to-trustee transfers between IRAs
  • Rollovers from traditional to Roth IRAs ("conversions")

Regardless of how many IRAs an individual owns, IRA owners should be prepared and may need to consult with their tax adviser should they consider an IRA-to-IRA rollover in 2015. To learn more about the 2015 "IRA One-Rollover-per-year Rule" change visit the IRS publication at http://www.irs.gov/Retirement-Plans/IRA-One-Rollover-Per-Year-Rule.
