I had heard that it is possible to claim the dividends paid in lieu when holding the SPY ETF short. (or any dividend paying position shorted).
I can only find where margin interest is claimed. I'm using TurboTax.
If it has to be claimed as a misc investing cost, it has the 2% cap, which does me no good.
If you can claim these dividends, where do you do it?
If this topic has been discussed, please post a link.
