|Subject: Special Dividend Taxable?||Date: 2/28/2009 3:18 PM|
|Author: quitman100||Number: 104841 of 122326|
I hold Smuckers stock and they issued a special dividend in October 2008. Does anyone know how I should report this on my income tax? The letter accompanying the check said it "allowed us to return capital" -- does that mean it is not treated as an ordinary dividend or something else.
Any help would be appreciated.
