The broker is Schwab.
The holding period is >1 year.
It is not a margin account.
There must be a place to look this up for a specific ETF. VEU was listed similarly but I thought maybe international was different.
Thanks for thinking it through with me. I will dig harder.
The "first" page on Schwab's 1099 DIV has the net dividends qualified, ordinary , foreign tax etc. Several pages later (p 14 on my 1099) it gives the adjustments that occurred after year end. Vanguard does the same thing but with a little different format in their detail section.
