BBNC 2019 Tax Information

Posted on | Back to Posts

Door Prizes: Door prizes or other winnings in cash or property valued of $600 or more are reported in Box 3 (Other Income) on Form 1099-MISC.

ANCSA 7(j) Payments: At-large shareholders received $20.96 per share ($2,096 for 100 shares) 7(j) resource payment in 2019.  7(j) payments are reported on Form 1099-MISC in box 3 (Other income). The 7(j) payment derives from resource sharing among the 12 regional corporations as required by the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA). The 7(j) payment appears on a different form because resource revenue payments are not dividends and are not considered investment income. Village corporation shareholders do not receive a 7(j) dividend as ANCSA requires that resource revenue be paid directly to the village corporations.

Bristol Bay Settlement Trust Distributions: The Settlement Trust distribution benefits paid in 2019 are not taxable and have not been reported on Form 1099.

Quarterly Elder Settlement Trust Distributions: The Bristol Bay Elders Trust distributions received in 2019 are not taxable and have not been reported on Form 1099.

BBNC cannot provide tax advice and shareholders are encouraged to consult with a tax advisor regarding individual circumstances and applicable federal and state tax requirements. Please remember that it is your responsibility to accurately report your BBNC related income on your tax returns.
