  • 2021 Source of foreign income

    Mutual funds that invest in foreign stocks pay taxes to the appropriate country on dividends generated by those investments. If the fund had more than 50% of its assets in foreign securities, shareholders are eligible to reduce their U.S. taxes through a direct credit against taxes due, or as an itemized deduction, by their share of the foreign taxes paid. The shareholder's portion of this foreign tax is reported on Form 1099-DIV. This form shows, for each fund, the amount of taxes paid by country in cases where a shareholder may need to provide this information on a tax return.

  • 2021 Treasury income percentage

    Putnam funds may invest a portion of their assets in U.S. Treasury securities. Since interest income from U.S. Treasury obligations is often exempt from state and local taxation, this could translate into a state tax break for shareholders. This form shows the percentage of each fund's distributions that was derived from Treasury income.

  • 2021 Alternative minimum tax (AMT) percentage

    The AMT percentage represents the portion of a fund's income that was earned from "private activity" bonds, income that should be taken into account by shareholders when they calculate their AMT. The AMT is a minimum federal income tax aimed at ensuring that high-income individuals pay a certain level of tax, even if standard calculations would set their tax lower. This form shows, for each fund, the percentage of income distributions subject to AMT.

  • 2021 Source of income earned — by state percentage

    A tax-exempt fund is exempt from federal tax, but not necessarily from state tax. For each tax-exempt fund, Putnam calculates the income percentages by state to help shareholders determine whether any or all of the income is exempt from their state taxes. This form shows these percentages.

    In addition to reporting the percentage of income for your state, shareholders should also provide the percentage figures for each U.S. territory (Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands). Income from bonds issued by the U.S. territories is generally exempt from state taxes.
