What to Do With 1099-DIV or 1099-INT

If you received dividends during the year, you may have received a 1099-DIV; interest you earned is taxable and you should get a 1099-INT for this income. You likely also received a 1099-B to report on your taxes. You can add these to your eFile account to generate the needed forms and add it to your taxable income.
