Q: Tax reporting: Dividends
Computershare must report to the IRS dividend income amounts paid to registered stockholders during a calendar year.
A copy of the report, Form 1099DIV, will be mailed to stockholders in December of each year. If you receive dividend checks, the Form 1099DIV will be attached to your December dividend check. If you have your dividends reinvested, the Form 1099DIV will be part of your December statement. Stockholders who do not receive a check, or a quarterly statement, will receive a separate Form 1099DIV. Dividend payments are reportable whether a dividend payment is issued by check, directly deposited to your bank account or reinvested into additional shares of stock.
To obtain this dividend information or a duplicate Form 1099DIV, you may contact Computershare (see contact information).
