I use TaxAct to fill out my tax returns.I have some annuity income that would normally come with a 1099R, but is from outside the US, so I do not get such a form or anything like it. I suspect I could get away without declaring it at all, but that violates my principles, and could get me into big trouble besides. So I put that income on line 21 of the 1040 and pay tax on it.I did try to bring up a blank 1099R form and filling it out, but it insists on a taxpayer id number and the foreign insurance company has no US taxpayer id, so I could not go that way.But Tax Act complains and warns me that my refund (and I seldom get one) will be delayed because the amount on line 21 is over $400. I did not get a refund for the 2010 tax year, but I did for the 2009 tax year. As far as I can tell, it was not delayed.What is this about? I would think the feds would be delighted to get that money reported. Is this a misunderstanding on the part of TaxAct? Or what?
