You must report and pay taxes on these distributions even if they were automati- cally reinvested to purchase additional fund shares. The “oxes” noted in the following tax form sections correspond to the box headings on the forms that Prudential sends to you.
A Total Ordinary Dividends
This box shows the amount of a distribution taxable as ordinary income. It includes taxable net investment income and short- term capital gains.
Total Capital Gain Distributions
These are taxable long-term gains from your mutual fund account. Profits from the sale of stocks and bonds held for more than one year are considered “long-term gains” and are taxed more favorably than investments held for one year or less. A capital gain is considered short or long term depending on how long the mutual fund, not the shareholder, has held the investment.
Unrecaptured Section 1250 Gain
Federal Income Tax Withheld
An amount reported here represents backup withholding. The rate for backup withholding was 28% in 2009. ackup withholding may be imposed when rules regarding taxpayer identification numbers (usually a Social Security number) are not met by the individual, or when we receive notice from the IrS to withhold on payments to that individual.
Foreign Tax Paid
This box shows the portion of the amount in ox 1a that is eligible for the lower income tax rate on dividends (0% for those in the 15% or lower brackets, 15% for all others).
This box shows the portion of the amount in ox 2a that represents gains received by a mutual fund from real Estate Investment Trusts (rEITs) on the sale of depreciable real property.
This shows the distribution of funds representing a return of cost basis.
Any amount reported here shows foreign taxes paid on your behalf by the fund. You may be able to claim a foreign tax deduction or credit on your federal tax return.
Cash Liquidation Distributions
Any amount distributed from fund liquidations.
