Got my third amended 1099 from Scottrade today and the culprit was BKCC and whether the dividends were qualified or not. Turns out it's about a $300 tax refund for me but now I have to file an amended return.
Rip...Scottrade is HORRIBLE. I've been with them for years and it never fails that I get one, two ,three and even once four amended 1099's. I know people that have other brokerage firms and NEVER get a single amended return. I know the fault does not lay with the brokerage firm but I've learned to wait until as close to the tax deadline as possible. I got a 2012 amended return from them (Scottrade) in January of 2013.
I can totally relate to your frustration. At least it's a tax refund as opposed to taxes due.
