Why didn’t I receive a form in the mail?
- If you earned less than $10 in dividends on your accounts in a tax year, you will not receive a 1099 tax form. Dividends earned can be found on your December 2020 statement. Please see a tax advisor for assistance.
- If you are enrolled in eDocuments, your tax forms will be available through WESTconsin Online. No paper form will be mailed. If you are unable to retrieve your electronic version of the form, you can stop in or call your local office.
- If you do not receive a tax form by February 22, please contact us to request another copy.

Know Your Numbers
When setting up Direct Deposit, electronic payments or electronic tax refunds, you’ll need to know certain numbers pertinent to your account. If you use an invalid or incorrect account number for electronic deposit of your tax refund it may be rejected and then the IRS will issue your tax refund as a check instead of attempting to deposit your funds electronically again.
