What’s a Distribution?
Certain portfolio transactions by mutual funds over the course of the year incur taxes, which then must be distributed to shareholders by the end of the year. Tax liabilities are created from 1) short-term capital gains from selling securities held for less than a year; 2) long-term capital gains from selling securities held longer than a year; 3) income from stock dividends; and 4) interest income from bonds.

For standard, taxable accounts, shareholders can choose to receive their distributions in cash or in the form of reinvested shares, and this election is made at the time of the account’s creation. Most shareholders opt to reinvest. In years the fund makes a taxable distribution, tax forms are mailed out near the end of the coming January.

Since IRA accounts are tax-exempt, distributions are always reinvested. There is no economic impact of a distribution for IRA accounts; the NAV is reduced the day of the distribution and shareholders receive more shares that offset the lower NAV.
