Corporate Dividends Paid and Received, 2003-2009

September 17, 2012

Abstract

This article presents IRS data on corporate dividends paid and received. Following the 2003 legislation that lowered the individual tax rate on dividends, roughly $350 billion of net corporate dividends have been paid annually. Less than half that amount has shown up as qualified dividend income on individual tax returns.
