ETF Mailing 1099-R Tax Statements
The Department of Employee Trust Funds has mailed the 2017 1099-R tax statements to Wisconsin Retirement System members who had a benefit distribution from the WRS in 2017. The 1099-R tax statement includes the total taxable portion of the benefit in 2017 and amounts withheld, if any, for state and federal taxes.
Annuitants who turned 59.5 in 2017: You will receive two 2017 1099Rs in separate mailings. The first will reflect all payments received in 2017 while under age 59.5; the second, all payments issued in 2017 after reaching age 59.5.
