QB Issue Resolution:

You asked this: “to post gain/loss (on dividend) investment”

Gain or Loss is a Sales activity, not a Dividend activity.

Return of basis offsets costs.

Dividends are income, unless they qualify under some specific tax rule that makes them not Ordinary income.

Interest is income.

It would help for you to ask your own tax accountant or CPA, since this also depends the specifics of this investment, and if this is Business activity, it depends on a whole lot of other stuff.

Once you learn How it is treated for accounting purposes, if you are not sure how to make that entry into QB, we can help. We can’t help with tax treatment issues.
