How do I input 1099-DIV from Canadian payer?

My client has 2 1099-DIV's from his Canada based employer. I can't figure out how to input this with a foreign address. It only seems to affect the state return (Mississippi for ref) stating an error that the zip does not match and can't be more than 5 characters.  Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

IGNORE ALL THIS - TOO EARLY IN THE MORNING - I SAW 1099R AND NOT 1099-DIV

Is there any withholding? If not, don't worry about the address. A name should be sufficient. If you still have problems. Make a comment below this and include @ShellyFromPTO in it for some employee help. OR use CHAT to talk with support. 

If you open detail on the 1099R, there is a check box below City/State/Zip for Foreign Address. Following that is Region/Postal code (leave zip bland and put the postal code here) and under that a drop down for country. 

NEW = 1099DIV why are you even trying to enter an address?

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
