2021 Qualified Dividend Income Percentage

All or a portion of your ordinary income dividend from a fund may be taxed at a reduced capital gains rate rather than the higher marginal rates applicable to ordinary income. The amount of your dividend subject to this lower rate is reported in Box 1b of your Form 1099-DIV mailed in late January. The tax forms for the T. Rowe Price Real Assets, Real Estate, Global Real Estate, and Small-Cap Value Funds mail in mid-February.

The tables below report the percentage of the ordinary dividend paid by the T. Rowe Price funds that qualify for the lower dividend rate. The data is provided here for informational purposes only and to assist you in your tax planning. In preparing your tax return, please use the amount in Box 1b of your Form 1099-DIV.

To treat a dividend as qualifying for lower rates, you must have held your shares on which you received the dividend for at least 61 days during the 121-day period beginning 60 days before the ex-dividend date of the distribution. Find your fund's ex-dividend date.

In addition, the ordinary dividend of a fund (the amount included in Box 1a of Form 1099-DIV) includes net short-term capital gains and foreign taxes paid, which may not qualify for the lower rates. As a result, the percentage of the Box 1a amount that qualifies for the lower tax rate can vary widely from year to year, depending on the amount of short-term gains and foreign taxes reported by the fund.

If you own a fund that has more than one distribution during the year, the amount reported in Box 1b of your Form 1099-DIV will be based on the qualifying percentage for each distribution.

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