1. Did you report the sale shown on the 1099-B, providing the holding period and basis information and calculating the gain/loss, on Schedule D (or elsewhere if such place was appropriate)?

2. Did you claim credit for the backup withholding on the wihholding line of the "Payments" section of your return?


The answer is yes to both. So I'm not sure why the withhoding was not credited to my payments.

I am subject to back-up withholding as for a few years in the 90's I sent them money but never got the 1040's done. As it gets more like archeology each day, it is a headache. They take one off of back-up withholding in October each year, I doubt I will make it this year, but I have hopes for next.

I am going to call Edward Jones to make sure the money was paid, not just reported as paid, but that seems doubtful.

Thanks, Karen
