If you receive a dividend income report without a payer's identification number, enter the information in the TaxAct program as though you received a Form 1099-DIV Dividends and Distributions, but leave the Payer's Federal Identification Number (FEIN) blank. This number is not required and the return will e-file without the number. The information required by the IRS is transferred to Schedule B and/or Schedule D of your return as necessary.
If you need help reporting Form 1099-DIV in the TaxAct program, go to our Form 1099-DIV - Entering Dividend Income in Program FAQ.
