Recd. my 1099 consolidated form from my Ameritrade. Have the following questions.

1. I had $7.24 worth of Money Market Interest from Ameritrade, but has not been reported in Interest Income (1099-Int).

Should I include this on my Tax Return?

2. I noticed that a distribution because of a 3 for 2 split of odd number of shares has been reported under 1099-DIV under Ordinary Dividends.

Should this be treated as sale of .5 shares and reported under Cap Gains or should I just report it as dividend?

3. Boxes 2a, 2b, 2c and 2d of 1099-DIV have nothing reported.

Does this mean that the gains from the 4 stocks that I sold in 1999, need not be reported for Cap Gains?

Thanks in Advance for your patience and help.
