Qualified Opportunity Funds
A Qualified Opportunity Fund (QOF) is an investment vehicle organized as a corporation or a partnership for the purpose of investing in qualified opportunity zone property. See section 1400Z-2(d).
Reporting dispositions of QOF investments. Report all dispositions of interests in the QOF regardless of the identity of the person who disposed of it. For example, if the person is a corporation, you should still file a Form 1099-B. A disposition includes any disposition of the investment (whether or not the disposition is for consideration), including by gift or inheritance.
In addition to these specific instructions, you should also use the 2021 General Instructions for Certain Information Returns. Those general instructions include information about the following topics.
Report each disposition on a separate Form 1099-B, regardless of how many dispositions any one person has made in the calendar year. The reporting Exceptions under Brokers, and the reporting Exceptions under Barter Exchanges, later, do not apply to dispositions of interests in a QOF. If you are a QOF that is not a broker or barter exchange and do not know that a broker or barter exchange reported a disposition of an interest in the QOF, then complete the following on the form in the manner instructed for the respective items and boxes.
• Who must file.
• When and where to file.
• Electronic reporting.
• Corrected and void returns.
• Statements to recipients.
• Taxpayer identification numbers (TINs).
• Backup withholding.
• Penalties.
• The definitions of terms applicable for chapter 4 purposes that are referenced in these instructions. • Other general topics.
• Box 1a. For interests in the QOF, enter the appropriate descriptions. For example, for stock, enter the number of shares or units; for partnerships, enter the percentage of investment.
You can get the general instructions from General Instructions for Certain Information Returns at IRS.gov/ 1099GeneralInstructions or go to IRS.gov/Form1099B.
Online fillable copies. To ease statement furnishing requirements, Copies B, C, 1, and 2 are fillable online in a PDF format available at IRS.gov/Form1099B. You can complete these copies online for furnishing statements to recipients and for retaining in your own files.
