Qualified Dividends

The Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003 reduced the tax rate on "qualified dividend income" to 15% or 5% (depending on your tax bracket). The law defines "qualified dividend income" as originating from stock in domestic corporations and certain foreign corporations that has been held for the requisite holding period. Income earned on bonds does not qualify for this reduced tax rate.

Consult your tax advisor for more information.

State Tax Information

Percentage of Income Earned by Issuer

This chart lists the percentages of income earned by direct and indirect obligations, and repurchase agreement income. Since some states define income from U.S. government obligations differently, a tax advisor is best suited to determine the portion of your dividends, if any, that are subject to state tax.

The Direct Federal Obligations section provides a break down of the percentage of income earned by the fund from Exempt Federal Securities by the specific direct government agencies listed.

The Indirect Federal Obligations section provides a break down of the percentage of income earned by the fund from indirect U.S. Government Obligations, such as the specific agencies listed.

The Repurchase Agreement Income section provides the percentage of income generated by the fund from repurchase agreements.

Tax Payments and Credits Information

Foreign Tax Credit

Gross dividends are calculated by adding the actual distribution per share with the corresponding per share portion of foreign tax withheld at the source on the fund's income. Please refer to your account statement to determine the amount of shares held on the date paid.

Holding Period Requirements: To claim this credit, you need to have owned shares for at least 15 days within the 31 day period that begins 15 days before the ex-dividend date, not including the day your shares were acquired.

Foreign tax paid may be deducted in computing taxable income if deductions are itemized or may be claimed as a credit against U.S. income tax. To claim the foreign tax credit, individuals must generally complete Form 1116. An exception to this filing requirement is available if certain conditions are met.

Retain this statement as proof of foreign tax payment if either a deduction or credit is claimed.

Consult your tax advisor for more information on your reporting of this information.
