Anybody else seeing the last dividend (paid 1/28/13) reported on their 1099 for tax year 2012? Is there some special treatment for REITs. I am waiting to hear from my broker...no response yet. Hopefully traders here can shed some light on this.
Div declared 2012 ; doesn't matter when it was paid.
Elementary tax law.
If it was actually paid in Jan, 2013, then it should be treated as income for 2013. I am missing something here. Maybe they recognize the accrual in 2012 as income?
