I received a corrected 1099 from Fidelity for 2010. One stock's (MCHP) dividend had been largely reclassified as a "non-dividend distribution". I contacted MCHP and their Investor Relations Manager replied that because they paid out more in 2010 in dividends than their taxable US earnings, their auditors had ruled 97.3% of the payout was actually a return of capital. Okay, I can amend my 2010 return and give the reason as a corrected 1099.However, Investor Relations also told me they had reclassified 64.8% of the 2009 dividend as return of capital for the same reason. Fidelity has not issured a corrected 1099 for 2009. Is the email from the company sufficient documentation for an amended 2009 return?
