This is picky, but I want my return to be lean and mean.

This year I don't get a foreign tax credit even though I had foreign taxes withheld. Form 1116 shows zero credit. Should I include it with my return anyway?

P.S. Taking the foreign taxes as a deduction makes no difference--I don't owe any taxes for 08 anyway (never, ever thought I'd be able to say that).
