Help, I am trying to do what I thought would be a very straightforward return for a trust that had no trades in it this past year. It only has dividends from some stocks. On the fed form there is a place to list dividends and qualified dividends, etc. On the California form it just says dividends. What the heck am I supposed to put in there...all dividends, just certain ones, or ???

California doesn't differentiate between qualified and non-qualified dividends. They only need the total dividends paid.

Thank you for your response. What I am perplexed by is that in previous years I used Turbotax, and in the "dividend" column it always inserted a number that was different than the total dividends paid. This year I am doing it with paper and pencil, and I don't understand how TT arrived at its figure in the previous years.
