Hi,

I have been dripping NDE for about a year. I received a very surprising 1099 from them. Although the company pays all the borkerage fee, for my initial investment they charged $15. In total, for the whole year, the brokerage charges are like $40. But, I only have to pay taxes on this amount as it is reported on the 1099. What bugs me is that there was no mention of such fees in the plan documents. The fee they charge eveytime is arbitrary, which is understandable, but not correct if they are very high. Do you guys think there is somme foul play? Should all of these fees have been disclosed in the begining?

thanks,
