Why 1099 DIV would generate QBI deduction on line 9.Never happened with other software like TaxAct. Getting Div is not a business.

If there is an amount in Box 5 of your 1099 DIV form, it will be used in the QBI deduction calculation as 20% of qualified REIT dividends are included.  See the attached 1099 DIV form and box 5 instructions below.  Also see the IRS QBI calculation worksheet which includes the qualified REIT dividends. 

Per the IRS recently released Notice 2019-07, the following is a definition of the income included in the QBI deduction calculation: 
Congress enacted section 199A (the Qualified Business Income Deduction) to provide a deduction to non-corporate taxpayers of up to 20 percent of the taxpayer’s qualified business income from each of the taxpayer’s qualified trades or businesses, including those operated through a partnership, S corporation, or sole proprietorship, as well as a deduction of up to 20 percent of aggregate real estate investment trust (REIT) dividends and qualified publicly traded partnership income.
