Tax extension for unemployed They will be shown in box 2a of the Form 1099-DIV you receive from the mutual fund or REIT. Tax extension for unemployed Report capital gain distributions as long-term capital gains, regardless of how long you owned your shares in the mutual fund or REIT. Tax extension for unemployed Undistributed capital gains of mutual funds and REITs. Tax extension for unemployed    Some mutual funds and REITs keep their long-term capital gains and pay tax on them.

Tax extension for unemployed Nondividend Distributions A nondividend distribution is a distribution that is not paid out of the earnings and profits of a corporation or a mutual fund. Tax extension for unemployed You should receive a Form 1099-DIV or other statement showing the nondividend distribution. Tax extension for unemployed On Form 1099-DIV, a nondividend distribution will be shown in box 3. Tax extension for unemployed If you do not receive such a statement, you report the distribution as an ordinary dividend. Tax extension for unemployed Basis adjustment. Tax extension for unemployed   A nondividend distribution reduces the basis of your stock. Tax extension for unemployed It is not taxed until your basis in the stock is fully recovered. Tax extension for unemployed This nontaxable portion is also called a return of capital; it is a return of your investment in the stock of the company. Tax extension for unemployed If you buy stock in a corporation in different lots at different times, and you cannot definitely identify the shares subject to the nondividend distribution, reduce the basis of your earliest purchases first. Tax extension for unemployed   When the basis of your stock has been reduced to zero, report any additional nondividend distribution you receive as a capital gain. Tax extension for unemployed Whether you report it as a long-term or short-term capital gain depends on how long you have held the stock. Tax extension for unemployed See Holding Period in chapter 14. Tax extension for unemployed Example. Tax extension for unemployed You bought stock in 2000 for $100. Tax extension for unemployed In 2003, you received a nondividend distribution of $80. Tax extension for unemployed You did not include this amount in your income, but you reduced the basis of your stock to $20. Tax extension for unemployed You received a nondividend distribution of $30 in 2013. Tax extension for unemployed The first $20 of this amount reduced your basis to zero. Tax extension for unemployed You report the other $10 as a long-term capital gain for 2013. Tax extension for unemployed You must report as a long-term capital gain any nondividend distribution you receive on this stock in later years. Tax extension for unemployed Liquidating Distributions Liquidating distributions, sometimes called liquidating dividends, are distributions you receive during a partial or complete liquidation of a corporation. Tax extension for unemployed These distributions are, at least in part, one form of a return of capital. Tax extension for unemployed They may be paid in one or more installments. Tax extension for unemployed You will receive Form 1099-DIV from the corporation showing you the amount of the liquidating distribution in box 8 or 9. Tax extension for unemployed For more information on liquidating distributions, see chapter 1 of Publication 550. Tax extension for unemployed Distributions of Stock and Stock Rights Distributions by a corporation of its own stock are commonly known as stock dividends. Tax extension for unemployed Stock rights (also known as “stock options”) are distributions by a corporation of rights to acquire the corporation's stock. Tax extension for unemployed Generally, stock dividends and stock rights are not taxable to you, and you do not report them on your return. Tax extension for unemployed Taxable stock dividends and stock rights. Tax extension for unemployed   Distributions of stock dividends and stock rights are taxable to you if any of the following apply. Tax extension for unemployed You or any other shareholder have the choice to receive cash or other property instead of stock or stock rights. Tax extension for unemployed The distribution gives cash or other property to some shareholders and an increase in the percentage interest in the corporation's assets or earnings and profits to other shareholders. Tax extension for unemployed The distribution is in convertible preferred stock and has the same result as in (2). Tax extension for unemployed The distribution gives preferred stock to some common stock shareholders and common stock to other common stock shareholders. Tax extension for unemployed The distribution is on preferred stock. Tax extension for unemployed (The distribution, however, is not taxable if it is an increase in the conversion ratio of convertible preferred stock made solely to take into account a stock dividend, stock split, or similar event that would otherwise result in reducing the conversion right. Tax extension for unemployed )   The term “stock” includes rights to acquire stock, and the term “shareholder” includes a holder of rights or of convertible securities. Tax extension for unemployed If you receive taxable stock dividends or stock rights, include their fair market value at the time of distribution in your income. Tax extension for unemployed Preferred stock redeemable at a premium. Tax extension for unemployed   If you hold preferred stock having a redemption price higher than its issue price, the difference (the redemption premium) generally is taxable as a constructive distribution of additional stock on the preferred stock. Tax extension for unemployed For more information, see chapter 1 of Publication 550. Tax extension for unemployed Basis. Tax extension for unemployed   Your basis in stock or stock rights received in a taxable distribution is their fair market value when distributed. Tax extension for unemployed If you receive stock or stock rights that are not taxable to you, see Stocks and Bonds under Basis of Investment Property in chapter 4 of Publication 550 for information on how to figure their basis. Tax extension for unemployed Fractional shares. Tax extension for unemployed    You may not own enough stock in a corporation to receive a full share of stock if the corporation declares a stock dividend. Tax extension for unemployed However, with the approval of the shareholders, the corporation may set up a plan in which fractional shares are not issued but instead are sold, and the cash proceeds are given to the shareholders. Tax extension for unemployed Any cash you receive for fractional shares under such a plan is treated as an amount realized on the sale of the fractional shares. Tax extension for unemployed Report this transaction on Form 8949, Sales and Other Dispositions of Capital Assets. Tax extension for unemployed Enter your gain or loss, the difference between the cash you receive and the basis of the fractional shares sold, in column (h) of Schedule D (Form 1040) in Part I or Part II, whichever is appropriate. Tax extension for unemployed    Report these transactions on Form 8949 with the correct box checked. Tax extension for unemployed   For more information on Form 8949 and Schedule D (Form 1040), see chapter 4 of Publication 550. Tax extension for unemployed Also see the Instructions for Form 8949 and the Instructions for Schedule D (Form 1040). Tax extension for unemployed Example. Tax extension for unemployed You own one share of common stock that you bought on January 3, 2004, for $100. Tax extension for unemployed The corporation declared a common stock dividend of 5% on June 29, 2013. Tax extension for unemployed The fair market value of the stock at the time the stock dividend was declared was $200. Tax extension for unemployed You were paid $10 for the fractional-share stock dividend under a plan described in the discussion above. Tax extension for unemployed You figure your gain or loss as follows: Fair market value of old stock $200. Tax extension for unemployed 00 Fair market value of stock dividend (cash received) +10. Tax extension for unemployed 00 Fair market value of old stock and stock dividend $210. Tax extension for unemployed 00 Basis (cost) of old stock after the stock dividend (($200 ÷ $210) × $100) $95. Tax extension for unemployed 24 Basis (cost) of stock dividend (($10 ÷ $210) × $100) + 4. Tax extension for unemployed 76 Total $100. Tax extension for unemployed 00 Cash received $10. Tax extension for unemployed 00 Basis (cost) of stock dividend − 4. Tax extension for unemployed 76 Gain $5. Tax extension for unemployed 24 Because you had held the share of stock for more than 1 year at the time the stock dividend was declared, your gain on the stock dividend is a long-term capital gain. Tax extension for unemployed Scrip dividends. Tax extension for unemployed   A corporation that declares a stock dividend may issue you a scrip certificate that entitles you to a fractional share. Tax extension for unemployed The certificate is generally nontaxable when you receive it. Tax extension for unemployed If you choose to have the corporation sell the certificate for you and give you the proceeds, your gain or loss is the difference between the proceeds and the portion of your basis in the corporation's stock allocated to the certificate. Tax extension for unemployed   However, if you receive a scrip certificate that you can choose to redeem for cash instead of stock, the certificate is taxable when you receive it. Tax extension for unemployed You must include its fair market value in income on the date you receive it. Tax extension for unemployed Other Distributions You may receive any of the following distributions during the year. Tax extension for unemployed Exempt-interest dividends. Tax extension for unemployed   Exempt-interest dividends you receive from a mutual fund or other regulated investment company, including those received from a qualified fund of funds in any tax year beginning after December 22, 2010, are not included in your taxable income. Tax extension for unemployed Exempt-interest dividends should be shown in box 10 of Form 1099-DIV. Tax extension for unemployed Information reporting requirement. Tax extension for unemployed   Although exempt-interest dividends are not taxable, you must show them on your tax return if you have to file a return. Tax extension for unemployed This is an information reporting requirement and does not change the exempt-interest dividends to taxable income. Tax extension for unemployed Alternative minimum tax treatment. Tax extension for unemployed   Exempt-interest dividends paid from specified private activity bonds may be subject to the alternative minimum tax. Tax extension for unemployed See Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) in chapter 30 for more information. Tax extension for unemployed Dividends on insurance policies. Tax extension for unemployed    Insurance policy dividends the insurer keeps and uses to pay your premiums are not taxable. Tax extension for unemployed However, you must report as taxable interest income the interest that is paid or credited on dividends left with the insurance company. Tax extension for unemployed    If dividends on an insurance contract (other than a modified endowment contract) are distributed to you, they are a partial return of the premiums you paid. Tax extension for unemployed Do not include them in your gross income until they are more than the total of all net premiums you paid for the contract.
