<< I am declaring stock sale gains on Sch. D, and using Sch. C for expenses (including margin interest cost of $14,000), with my dividends declared as "other income" on the Sch. C. My
problem is that there is still a gain on the Sch. C., apparently making me subject to filing Sch SE, triggering Self Employment tax on what is really dividends. >>

Possibly a dumb comment here. How about putting dividends on Sch B and putting the margin interest on line 13 of Sch A, as a deduction?

Or am I missing something?
