nominee interest


Interest received on behalf of someone else. For example, in a joint account the interest earned on a fund owned by the other person is passed onto that person, the person who has passed the interest has to fill in a form 1099-NIT to be exempted from paying tax on that interest. The tax is then passed to the person who has received the interest.
