2018 Qualified REIT Dividends

Beginning in 2018 (until the end of 2025), if you are a taxpayer other than a corporation, you are generally allowed a deduction of up to 20% of your qualified real estate investment trust (REIT) dividends. Qualified REIT dividends from a mutual fund are reported in Box 5 of your Form 1099‑DIV.

The table below reports the percentage of the ordinary dividend paid by the T. Rowe Price funds that may be eligible for the deduction. The data is provided here for informational purposes only and to assist you in your tax planning. In preparing your tax return, use the amount in Box 5 of your Form 1099-DIV.

Note that you may not take this deduction for a dividend on shares of a fund that have been held for less than 46 days during the 91-day period beginning on the date 45 days before the ex-dividend date. You may find your fund's ex-dividend date here.

If you own a fund that has more than one distribution during the year, the amount reported in Box 5 of your Form 1099-DIV will be based on the qualifying percentage of each distribution.

Calculations based on the percentages below may yield amounts that differ from the amounts on your Form 1099-DIV due to rounding.

Please consult your tax advisor for the impact on your return. You may also find the information on this IRS web page useful: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/tax-cuts-and-jobs-act-provision-11011-section-199a-qualified-business-income-deduction-faqs.
