Foreign Tax Credits

2023 mutual fund foreign tax credits

You may be entitled to take either a foreign tax credit or an itemized deduction for the amount of the foreign taxes paid, as reported on IRS Form 1099-DIV, Box 7. It is usually more advantageous for you to take the foreign tax credit. To file for the allowable credit, you may be required to complete IRS Form 1116 and attach it to your IRS Form 1040. (Please refer to IRS Form 1040 instructions for exceptions from filing IRS Form 1116 to claim a tax credit.)

Mutual fund investing involves risks, including the possible loss of principal, and may not be appropriate for all investors. Stock values fluctuate in response to the activities of individual companies and general market and economic conditions. Bond values fluctuate in response to the financial condition of individual issuers, general market and economic conditions, and changes in interest rates. Changes in market conditions and government policies may lead to periods of heightened volatility in the bond market and reduced liquidity for certain bonds held by the fund. In general, when interest rates rise, bond values fall and investors may lose principal value. Interest rate changes and their impact on the fund and its share price can be sudden and unpredictable. Funds that concentrate their investments in a single industry may face increased risk of price fluctuation over more diversified funds due to adverse developments within that industry. Foreign investments are especially volatile and can rise or fall dramatically due to differences in the political and economic conditions of the host country. These risks are generally intensified in emerging markets. Smaller- and mid-cap stocks tend to be more volatile and less liquid than those of larger companies. High-yield securities have a greater risk of default and tend to be more volatile than higher-rated debt securities. Consult a fund’s prospectus for additional information on these and other risks.
