    Anyone Hold MFA in Certificate Form

    I noticed MFA issues a press release in mid February about the taxability of dividends. If you hold the stock certificates you would get a 1099 from Mellon by January 31. Did this 1099 reflect the dividend breakdown as indicated in the Februay 14 press release? I'm trying to figure out if the company (and Mellon) knows the breakdown in January and they just don't release the numbers to the public until February or do they have to mess with reissued 1099's. I would think the biggest challenge for them is to figure out how much of the 4th quarter's dividend is 2004 income and how much is 2005 income. Thanks.
