Phil,I think (with out giving any tax advise) the answer to your first question is ref # is your account number with the brokerage firm. If its optional you could save the ink and fogetaboudit!Your broker is the withholding agent. I think it works as follows: the broker gets your dividend and puts it in your account. At that time the broker sees if they need to take some of that money and send it to the IRS.The same with a stock sale. Your BROKER is the one to do the wirhholdings and not the individual company.Fool on
