I have the same problem with mine too.  Box 9a & 9b both have the same dollar value on stock from "company T," which I've had more than 25 yrs after inheriting it from my father.  Dividend is never more than $100/yr.  I also got a 'nastygram letter' from the IRS, and it seems that I'm getting taxed twice on such a small amount of income.

I am a tax professional, with experience in individual taxation. I would prefer not to answer questions about non-resident aliens or corporate taxation. Please do not ask me state related questions, unless the state is Pennsylvania. There are 42 taxing states and 42 TOTALLY different sets of state tax law.


I have been preparing tax returns almost all my life. I have been in professional practice for 25 years and I am enrolled to practice before the Internal Revenue Service.

I am a prior Money Magazine Tax Test taker and have been quoted extensively in all media including monthly periodicals and books by tax authorities.
