Heck yes. Just attach a copy of your broker's statement which shows the amount of foreign taxes withheld and take the credit.
Hzving been off at an investor education conference since last Thursday, I seem to have missed the firestorm which resulted from my post. <vbg>
Nevertheless, I have to question the directions given above. Why attach unnecessary documentation? Foreign taxes paid are already reported to the IRS on 1099-DIV. There is no need to provide additional paper.
P.S. (yes, I realize not everyone will see this) Anyone interested in a top-notch investor education conference, check out InvestEd 2010, August 6-8, 2010 in Baltimore, MD. (www.investor-education2010.org). You can learn more about us by replacing 2010 in the URL with 2008 or 2009 - links to the websites for the previous two conferences.
