Should I enter a 1099 from my broker's statement if it contains all zeros?

No. Although your consolidated 1099 tax statement includes forms 1099-B, 1099-DIV, 1099-INT, 1099-MISC, and 1099-OID, don't enter any that contain nothing but zeros. Blank 1099s aren't reported to the IRS, despite what your statement may lead you to believe, and will generate errors when you try to file.

Similarly, don't enter 0.00 in TurboTax to match zero-dollar boxes on your 1099. Just leave 0.00 boxes blank when entering your 1099, unless the program specifically instructs you to enter something (this is uncommon).
