Wouldn't it be more appropriate to guess based on previous years and submit that payment with a request for an extension?

Well I could make a guess but if it's wrong won't the IRS kick it out as a mismatch 1099-DIV amount? An extension won't help if a duplicate 1099-DIV is sent and again "misplaced". Remember, I'm dealing with an eighty plus relative who is trying to stay in her own home with assistance from friends. I'm the nephew who lives 850 miles away and visits this time of the year to try to help out. I leave tomorrow and will turn over the info I found to her friends who will input it into tax software and chug out a return as best we can.

It certainly is not the best or ideal situation but it is what it is.
