Individual stockholders whose shares are held in street name should contact their broker, bank, or other intermediary for more information on any dividend reinvestment plan changes.
Are dividends taxable to stockholders?
Dividends are generally taxable to U.S. stockholders as ordinary income or capital gains. After the end of the year, we will send to each of our U.S. registered stockholders a Form 1099-DIV, which details the taxability of the dividends paid in the preceding year, including a breakdown between ordinary income and capital gains. Participants in the DRIP are taxed on the dividends as if they were received in cash. For information on the tax status of the prior year’s dividends, please visit our Tax Information page. For information about taxes in respect of dividends received by you, you should consult your own tax advisor.
