Information reported to you on Form 1099-DIV and Form 1099-B can be entered in the TaxAct program in the Investment Income section of the Federal Q&A, or directly on the forms where applicable. The Tax Summary screen will indicate if the tax has been computed on the Schedule D Worksheet or the Qualified Dividends and Capital Gain Tax Worksheet.
To review the Tax Summary in the TaxAct program, go to our Summary of Return - Tax Summary FAQ. If the tax was calculated on either of these worksheets, you should see "Tax computed on Qualified Dividend Capital Gain WS" as one of the items listed.
