"Choose the state where your tax-exempt dividends came from" My 1099-Div does not list a state. Do I put my home state of Georgia?

"Choose the state where your tax-exempt dividends came from" My 1099-Div does not list a state. Do I put my home state of Georgia?

Not if it was from a municipal bond fund that contained bonds for multiple states

...you go to the bottom of the list and select "More than one state".

You only select GA if the $$ represent ONLY GA-issued bonds from GA, or bonds issued by municipalities in GA.

There is a way to break out just the GA-issued bond interest, but you would need the detailed list from whoever issued the the 1099-DIV form, and you would then calculate the proper amounts from that.

Example: box 10 of the 1099-DIV is $1000.  Your financial provider says 2% were from GA-issued bonds.  You could break out $20 as GA-issued bond interest and save yourself ~$1 in GA taxes.  

Whether it is worth the effort depends on how big box 10 is, and also on the % from GA bonds
