YOU’RE SET UP FOR SUCCESS

The federal government taxes investment income (such as interest and dividends) and realized capital gains. M1 uses built-in tax efficiency to help reduce the amount owed on taxes automatically, but you’ll still need to file a few forms with the rest of your taxes by April 18, 2022 in accordance with the IRS tax code.
