Can I file his 1099 DIV on my tax return. I do not know if “Is it in the EIN of his estate as well? Or is it in his SSN? “ The account is belong to his company. Thank you!
If you received the income, report the 1099-DIV on your return. If not, ignore it.
Depending on the amount of dividends reported, there is a very small chance the IRS will send an automated notice later this year asking for an explanation. If they do, you can provide the details as above.
