Important Reminders About Your April 2014 Tax-Related Transactions

pocket-watch1This is an important reminder regarding transactions you may need to complete in your LPL Financial account before the April 15, 2014 tax deadline.

• Please note that we must have adequate time to liquidate assets if necessary in order to transfer funds from your taxable account into your IRA, Roth, or SEP IRA for a contribution. We cannot move securities “in-kind” for a contribution and most liquidation transactions have a 3-business-day settlement date.

• We require a signed form in order to transfer funds from your taxable account into your IRA, Roth, or SEP IRA. Please allow time for us to obtain your signature on the form and to submit it to LPL Financial for processing. We need to have the signed form in hand, with funds available in the account from which you are transferring, by 4-8-14 to allow adequate time for processing.

• If you are making a deposit for a 2013 IRA, Roth, or SEP IRA contribution, the envelope in which you mail your check must be postmarked no later than 4-15-14 in order to apply the deposit as a 2013 contribution. If you deliver the check to us, we must receive it by 2:00 PM Eastern time on 4-15-14 in order to deposit it as a 2013 contribution.

Your contribution checks must be made payable to “LPL Financial.”

Thank you for helping us serve you better.
