#1; You may receive a corrected Form 1099-DIV only if an issuer changes or reclassifies a security’s dividend payments such as from an ordinary dividend to a qualified dividend or a dividend to a return of capital, after your tax statements have been issued.
#2;i guess so.if you received it after you filed return, then,you must file 1040x;if you do not file an amended return, you are likely to attract the attention of the IRS when your carryforward next year is different from the one shown on your 2013 return.
