The American Funds listed below distributed income from U.S. government obligations. Some of the ordinary dividends paid by these funds may be excluded from state income tax.
To the best of our knowledge, the states and jurisdictions listed below allow individual shareholders to exclude from their state taxable income the portion of mutual fund dividends derived from interest on certain U.S. government obligations. The state tax exclusion may not apply to corporations and other entities. (States without individual income tax are not listed.)
You will need the Total Ordinary Dividends (Box 1a) of Form 1099-DIV to calculate your total state tax exclusion for each fund owned.
The percentage of the dividends paid by American Funds Inflation Linked Bond Fund as disclosed in the table qualifies for the exclusion. No other fund’s dividends qualified.
*For California, Connecticut and New York shareholders, the percentage of the dividends paid by American Funds Inflation Linked Bond Fund, as disclosed in the table, qualifies for the exclusion. No other fund’s dividends qualified.
Investors should carefully consider investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other important information is contained in the fund prospectuses and summary prospectuses, which can be obtained from a financial professional and should be read carefully before investing.
Investments are not FDIC-insured, nor are they deposits of or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity, so they may lose value.
