    Hi All,

    Taxpayer received a composite 1099 with negative dividends in box 1a from a REIT, making the total ordinary dividends reported in box 1a less than the total qualified dividends reported in box 1b. My tax software diagnostics, I am using Drake, is generating an invalid data code saying qualified dividends cannot be greater than ordinary dividends and this must be corrected before e-filing is allowed.
    Any and all comments would be much appreciated.
