Apparently Fidelity thinks the MTGE dividend is a qualified dividend. I haven't gotten my 1099 from them yet, but it is showing up in my tax summary as qualified. Is anyone else seeing this? And for the record, my AGNC dividends are showing up as unqualified, as they should.
Last year, my broker's 1099 showed my MREIT dividends to be qualified. But in mid-March, I received an amended 1099 showing them as unqualified. From what I can gather, that is apparently a common practice.
