The Form 1098 year-end Mortgage Interest Statement summarizes the payments you paid to your mortgage servicer(s). If no payments were received during the prior calendar year (or during the time we serviced the account during the prior calendar year), IRS Form 1098 will reflect a zero in box 1 (no interest paid). We send this form and the accompanying notices to ensure compliance with applicable state and federal disclosure requirements.

Form 1099-INT is an annual tax statement provided by payers of interest income that summarizes your interest income for the tax year.
