According to the Internal Revenue Service, distributions that are paid on shares of common stock are taxable as dividend income (to the extent those distributions are paid out of WHG’s current or accumulated earnings and profits). Distributions on WHG shares of common stock that were not paid out of WHG’s current or accumulated earnings and profits will be treated as a return of capital to the extent that the basis in the investor’s shares of common stock, and any such payments in excess of the basis, will therefore be taxed as a capital gain.
