Does anyone have a problem with the Foreign Tax Credit Form 1116 which incorrectly includes domestic mutual fund capital gains distributions as foreign source income?

  I figured out that you can't input the foreign dividends and the related foreign tax credits on the same 1099Div where your entered the domestic data.

  I went to the Form 1116 input screen and entered the foreign dividends and credits as though I had a seperate 1099Div. All calculations were then done correctly.

  I was unable to get an answer from the chat line except that they would look into the matter and to watch for a possible solution.
