1099R Income Tax Statements Each year, by January 31, a Form 1099-R (similar to Form W-2, Statement of Income and Tax Withheld, that you received annually while you were working) will be sent to you. Shown on the Form 1099-R are the amount of your retirement benefits, the taxable portion (if any), the amount of tax withheld (if any) and related information. Copies will also be sent to the Internal Revenue Service and North Carolina Department of Revenue. Therefore, you should report your retirement benefits on your federal and State tax returns regardless of whether you owe any income tax. You may also print out a 1099 from you ORBIT account. Log in and click on "View 1099/W2 Tax Documents." From there you can download and print your statements.
