I opened a Roth IRA in Jan. 1998. I just got a 1099DIV form from the broker. I'm assuming that the IRS will somehow know that this is an IRA, and that I won't be paying taxes on any earnings inside the IRA.

Also, when I opened my account, there were no forms specifically for Roth IRA, so I filled out a regular IRA form and specified in writing that it was meant to be a Roth IRA (at the direction of the broker.) Are there any specific forms from the IRS that I should have filled out for this IRA?
