In figuring the value of an estate, how are dividends
In figuring the value of an estate, how are dividends declared but not paid treated? One firm, Charles Schwab, says the amount is added to the assets. I think they're excluded, because they are already included in the x-dividend value of the stock and will later become income to the cash basis estate. Seems like Schwab's method results in double taxation unless you do a manual adjustment somewhere.
