Ask A CPA - Interest - Itemized Deduction

Is My Margin Interest From My Brokerage Account Reported To The IRS ?

The IRS does not require brokerage firms to report margin interest on the form 1099-INT. Generally, the amount is reported on the statement you receive from your brokerage firm as margin interest paid on the non-reportable section of the Consolidated 1099.
