I have heard brokers revising 1099-DIV's forcing a tax amendment. I am debating whether I should send in my tax return now or wait until closer to April 15th to see if any revised 1099s are issued. What is easier - revising a current tax form with new 1099 numbers, or filing the tax form now and sending in a 1040-X form later?

It is always easier - and cheaper - to file once instead of twice.

What about interest on any difference if the 1040-X is sent in after April 15th assuming the revisions increase income?

What about it? You'll owe it, if that's the case. But the IRS rate is 3%, so for a short term, it's never very much.
