As to an ETF, you should get a 1099 for the tax year and they will tell you how much of the dividends are taxible and how much are not. It will depend on such things as when did the ETF buy the stock that generated the dividend and whether the stock paying the dividend qualifies (for example most REIT dividends are not qualified.).

My guess is that ADR dividends could be qualified if bought at the right time, but I don't know this for sure. Your 1099 should tell you, but that is after the fact.
