The Buckle (BKE) issued its normal Jan dividend in Dec and also a special dividend in Dec. My broker reported these on a 1099-MISC, but I think they should be qualified dividends on the 1099-DIV. Previous dividends are qualified dividends on the 1099-DIV. How do I confirm the correct status for these dividends? I couldn't find anything on the company web site. Thanks.


One possibility: Does this relate to dividends on stock sold short?
That is reportable as miscellaneous income, and it wouldn't be an issue specific to the company.
