Thank you Dan and pauleckler for your replies. Dan, the accrued interest total was on a document which listed all my purchases and came with the 1099-INT, but was not sent to the IRS. It's therefore probably not relevant to the issue. As I do have other interest to report, subtracting all accrued interest wouldn't yield a negative number, though it would quite close. I hadn't thought of that possibility; the fact that that occurrence would not be rare, and is not mentioned on Schedule B or in Publication 550 (I think that's the one), indicates to me that one most likely must match accrued interest to bonds which have paid interest. Thanks again.
