Nashua, NH Resident Wants to Be Prepared for the End of the Year
Dividends are typically considered taxable income for the year that they are received and will be taxed
at the end of the tax year. Even if the money was not received in cash, being reinvested buying more
shares, it will still need to be reported and will most likely be subject to taxes. How this money is taxed
depends on your taxable income and filing status. The dividends will be considered either nonqualified
or qualified. Qualified dividends usually have a lower tax rate, 0% 15%, or 20% depending on your
income level. Nonqualified dividends are taxed at the same rate as your regular income.
