There is some misunderstanding of what I posted. I had foreign tax withheld from dividends. This was reported on 1099s. I filled out (or had TurboTax do it) Form 1116 to see if I got a foreign tax credit. The form says I get zero foreign tax credit. I will check the worksheet for Form 1116 to see if I can carry forward any unclaimed credit.Since I get zero foreign tax credit, should I even bother to include Form 1116 with my return? That was the question. As an aside, I mentioned that I owe no tax for 08 because I anticipated that someone would suggest I take the foreign tax witheld as a deduction. Whether I take it or not, makes no difference. --fleg
