Refer to the following chart for the kinds of information you might receive from us. Your account type and the transactions you made during the previous year will determine which, if any, of the following IRS tax forms you receive. You may not receive all the communications listed.

To conserve resources and for your convenience, we will automatically consolidate mailings sent through the U.S. Postal Service to investors with the same last name living at the same address. Personal account statements will arrive in one envelope and your household will receive just one copy of reports, prospectuses and newsletters, unless you request that we mail them separately. Business account statements and tax mailings are mailed separately.
