It’s tax season, the most wonderful time of the year … for someone, we’re assuming. For the rest of us, it’s the season of gathering records, filing documents, and hoping for a refund. The good news: If you invest online with Ellevest, we’ve got your tax questions covered — plus a handy timeline of the tax deadlines and documents you’ll need for the 2022 filing year.
2022 IRA Contribution Timeline
You can keep contributing to your IRA for the 2022 tax year through April 18, 2023. You still have time to max it out, or just keep putting in.
The Ellevest contribution deadline is April 13. That little buffer helps us make sure we can process your deposit in time. You’ll need to have an open account and an active bank link to make a contribution to your IRA.
For 2022, you can contribute a maximum $6,000 if you’re under 50, and $7,000 if you’re over 50. If you have more than one IRA, that is the limit across all of them — both traditional and Roth IRAs.
If you’d like to know more about that, we’ve got you covered. Check out our Retirement IRS Limit Cheat Sheet.
2022 Tax Document and Filing Timeline
Every year, Ellevest and Goldman Sachs Custody Solutions (your account’s broker-dealer and custodian, formerly called Folio) provide all Ellevest clients with the tax documents you’ll need in order to tell the IRS about your investment account(s) when you file your taxes.
We’ll send you an email every time a new 2022 tax document becomes available in your account. After you get the email, you'll be able to find the document by logging in to your account on desktop, clicking on “Hi, [your name]” in the top right-hand corner of your dashboard, and then selecting “Documents” from the dropdown menu. From the mobile app, you can tap the User tab at the bottom of the screen, then “Documents.”
Here’s when you can expect each document. (FYI, depending on your account, you may not need all of them. We’ll only send you the ones you need.)
January 31, 2023: Form 1099-R will be available.
This form lets you list any distributions (aka withdrawals) you took from your IRAs in 2022.
February 28, 2023: First day most Ellevest clients can file taxes.
You’ll receive a 1099 form if you sold securities, or if your dividends or interest in a taxable account were greater than $10. You’ll also receive an 8949 form if there were any securities sold in your taxable account — this form lets you list capital gains and / or losses.
April 13, 2023: Ellevest’s IRA contribution deadline.
To make a 2022 contribution to your Ellevest IRA account, you’ll need to have an active bank link, no restrictions on your account, and a deposit scheduled on or before this day. (Here’s more info if you need help.)
April 18, 2023: IRS tax filing deadline for 2022.
The normal “file-your-taxes-by-today” day. It falls on a Tuesday this year, btw. (It’s usually the 15th, but this year that’s a Saturday.)
May 31, 2023: Form 5498 will be available.
This form lets you list your total contributions to your IRA in a given tax year. It’s just for your records and not required for tax reporting.
October 15, 2023: IRS extension tax filing deadline for 2022.
