You can put it in the column currently reserved for the pointless box 3 Non-dividend distribution box and move THAT to the Dividend Income worksheet.  1099A dividends are quite common.

I like that one.  If I had two accounts setup, I would log back in and vote again.

I must have a lot of clients with bad investments since I see a lot more Non-dividend distributions than I see 199A dividends.

Im seeing more and more of the 199A divs.

That's surprising, poolcleaner but even so, it's a meaningless entry.  It needs to be demoted to the worksheet.

You are correct......it is meaningless while 199A has a good chance of changing the tax liability.
