The Small Print
Here are some details we thought you should know about. First, the bonus is considered interest and will be reported on IRS Form 1099-INT, so make sure you know how to properly claim it on your taxes in April. This offer is not available on account conversions or in combination with any other offer. Also, an Early Account Closing Fee will apply to accounts closed within 180 days of opening, and the Bank reserves the right to limit one gift incentive per household.
