Gross Dividends

Similar in concept to gross income, gross dividends are the sum total of all dividends received. Gross dividends include all ordinary dividends that are paid, plus capital-gains distributions and nontaxable distributions received by the taxpayer during the year.

Most gross dividends are reported on Form 1099-DIV. Ordinary dividends are reported in box 1a, while the other forms of dividend income are listed elsewhere. However, not all dividend income reported on the 1099-DIV is reported on Schedule B.
