Differences in Vanguard Reports?

While doing some Tax Planning... I looked at the 1099-Div Form that Vanguard Sent me for 2017 and then running the Dividends and Capital Gains Report under my Account at the Vanguard Website for Taxable Account, they don't match. They are close but It seems like they match. I only have 1 Taxable Account with Vanguard, so it's pretty simple.

Any Idea Why they don't match?

Did you convert to a brokerage account this year? You'll get two 1099s if you did.

Recall that short term capital gains get folded into ordinary dividends, but not qualified dividends. Perhaps one of your mutual funds threw off some short term capital gains. (The rate on STGs and on non qualified dividends is the same so combining them saves some paper) For example I have some MHD and although it is a muni bond fund it does throw off capital gains, the short term gains show up as ordinary dividends on the vanguard 1099

In my case on on the long term investment grade bond fund, the total dividends included a short term capital gain on the 1099, while the web site shows the short term gains broken out I.E. the total ordinary dividends paid is equal to the sum of the short term gains and the dividends shown on the web site. (Just like it worked for holdings on the brokerage side as I indicated above)

If your Vanguard fund paid foreign taxes, then that money did not show up in your account as a dividend, but it did show up on your 1099-DIV as part of the higher total dividend reported to the IRS.

But in that case, the 1099-DIV will have foreign taxes paid, so box 1 (all dividends) minus box 6? (foreign taxes) is what your online account should say you got.

Mine is off in VTIAX by the amount of foreign tax paid, and also there is a money market dividend that is dated 1/2/18 but shows in my 2017 1099-DIVs, and not the online totals.

Yeah - that causes a discrepancy between what is reported as taxable income (usually after the year is over) and what has actually been received.
