Qualified dividends are dividends received by a fund from a stock, provided that the fund has held the stock for a required holding period. Mutual funds may pass through to investors any qualified dividends it receives. At the fund level, these may be applied to ordinary income and/or short-term capital gains distributions.
Qualified dividends are taxed at the long-term capital gain rates. To qualify for these reduced rates, you must own the mutual fund's shares for a period of 61 days or longer. That period must include the date the fund distributed the dividends.
The table below reflects the percentage of each fund's distributions that are considered qualified.
