Does anyone know if the mutual fund companies are going to break out the capital gains distributions for before and after May 5 on the 1099Div?

Yes, they will be required to separate them out.

If you hold your mutual funds through a broker, I'd plan on getting a revised 1099 sometime in March. The broker is still required (unless they got a reprieve this year) to get you a 1099 by January 31. Mutual funds likely can't get the work done in time to meet that deadline. So the broker will issue a 1099 in January that they suspect will be incorrect, becuase the mutual funds haven't passed along all of the necessary information yet. Then they'll get a revised one to you once the mutual funds have given the broker the final numbers.

What a mess.
