Every year, Ellevest and your broker-dealer and custodian Folio will provide Ellevest Digital/Premium clients with the tax documents you’ll need for reporting your account to the IRS.
You’ll receive an email each time a 2018 tax document that’s relevant to your Ellevest account becomes available. Once they’re ready, you can also find them by clicking on Investing in the top left-hand corner of your dashboard, and selecting Documents from the dropdown menu.
