Form 1099-B. Form 1099-B has been redesigned so that the information is reported in boxes that are numbered to match the corresponding line and column on Form 8949. A new box has also been added at the top of Form 1099-B to tell you which box to check when completing Form 8949. These changes will make it easier for you to complete Form 8949. A Form 1099-B (or substitute statement) for transactions involving certain types of debt instruments acquired after 2013 will have more detailed information than a Form 1099-B (or substitute statement) for transactions involving debt instruments acquired before 2014. This is also true for a Form 1099-B (or substitute statement) for options granted or acquired after 2013 or securities futures contracts entered into after 2013. This additional information will help you complete Form 8949 and Schedule D.
