2021 Tax Guide for Prosper Investors

If you’re a retail investor who holds Notes from Prosper, here’s what you need to know:

  • In connection with your investment through Prosper, you may receive the following forms for the 2021 calendar year:
    • 1099-OID: Net accrued interest of $10 or more received in 2021
    • 1099-MISC: Other income (such as late fees) of $600 or more received in 2021
    • 1099-B: Gross proceeds from sales or recoveries received in 2021 from Notes corresponding to loans charged-off in 2021 or prior years.

These 1099 tax statement(s) will be available in your Prosper account on January 31, 2022. Please note, it is your responsibility to check your account and review all information provided before filing your tax return.

Prosper does not provide tax, financial or legal advice and neither this post nor Prosper’s tax guide is intended to be tax, financial or legal advice. We recommend that you consult with your financial or tax advisor if you have any questions. The IRS also provides guidance on the back of the 1099 tax form(s) designed to describe what is reported in each box on the form and where the amount may be reported on an income tax return.
