Mutual fund shareholders and managed account holders are required by law to pay taxes on distributions, regardless of whether distributions are paid out in cash or reinvested in additional shares. (This does not apply to mutual funds held in tax-advantaged accounts such as Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) and 401(k) and 403(b) accounts.)
Each fund intends to distribute to its shareholders, at least annually, all or substantially all of its investment company taxable income and any net capital gains. In addition to the distribution dates noted within the calendar above, additional distributions may be necessary to avoid imposition of excise tax. Please see our Statement of Additional Information for details on excise tax.
Distribution policies for mutual funds are outlined in the prospectus, located in the Mutual Funds Literature section.
Standardized total return performance and SEC yields can be found in the Performance and Prices & Yields summary.
