Well, you can certainly change what is reported on the 1099-DIV if you wish ...

Where did I say to change what was reported on the 1099-DIV? I did not.

And vague statements like "A 1099 from a broker is often insufficient..." really doesn't mean anything.

It means exactly what I said. A 1099 from a broker not sufficient. You need more info than what is reported on a 1099-DIV in some situations that are not uncommon. Ditto for a 1099B. And a 1099-INT.

If you have specific examples, show them and cite the Pub or IRC.

I provided several examples up-thread. Try reading those.

Otherwise, you're just making noise and being annoying.

Well, one of us is noisy and annoying. My vote is for the person who isn't interested in learning or understanding what has been posted. I don't think it's me. Feel free to respond or not. You may have the last word, as I won't be reading any further posts from you.
