If I receive a 1099 DIV for < $10.00 do I have to include it in my tax filling?


Not only that, but if you received income from an account that did not exceed $10, and you did not receive a 1099-DIV... you *still* need to include that income on your tax return. You must declare all income, period, otherwise you are filing a false return.

The 1099 forms are for your convenience. But not receiving one does not mean the income doesn't count. It does.
