Dear Sir:I wonder how you would have felt at receiving such a reply as the one you just gave?A few quotes may help you understand:I say there is no darkness but ignorance. - ShakespeareA fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool. -ShakespeareOur doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt. -ShakespeareSo I know I am messed up about foreign dividends and taxes, and I will just go to the IRS web site and read forms 901, 590, 1116, and the instructions to 1040 very carefully. Last I heard, the IRS was just fine with me (no pun intended), but I doubt I’ll ask questions ‘round here too soon again.Have you heard this one about lawyers? Lawyers are the only persons in whom ignorance of the law is not punished. - Jeremy BenthamPerhaps there should be a corollary for errant CPAs:“Accountants are the only persons in whom ignorance of the tax laws are not fined”?You spanked me pretty hard, but all in good fun. At this point I think I will just avoid dividends, and avoid the tax board! Good luck to all.TempoAllegro
