Frequently Asked Questions

1099 Forms

If you earned more than $10 in interest, tax forms will either be available electronically in Online Banking if you are enrolled in eStatements or mailed to you by the end of January.

If you are looking for your Interest Summary information, log in to online banking and select the Accounts tab in the top menu and then choose “Interest Summary”. This page will display last calendar year's dividends or interest, as well as the current year's year-to-date dividends or interest.

1098 Forms

If you paid interest on a BECU mortgage loan, 1098 tax forms will be mailed by January 31 of each year.

These tax forms can also be found in Online Banking. Select the Accounts & Loans tab in the top menu, then choose Mortgage. Once on the online mortgage site, select Document Center and then click Year End Statement.

You will receive tax forms for loan accounts only if you paid $600 or more in interest on a qualifying mortgage loan. Members who do not meet this criteria can find year-to-date information for their accounts in Online Banking. Alternatively, we can provide it to you over the phone if you call 800-233-2328.


BECU does not mail out any tax information for auto, boat or RV loans. You can check with your tax advisor to find out whether or not you can claim the interest. We will mail you a year-end statement, which will include the interest paid on the loan. Alternatively, you may request a letter stating the amount of interest that was paid. To obtain a letter, send an email to our Service Department at servicing2@becu.org.
