Dividend income

Distribution of earnings to shareholders that may be in the form of cash, stock, or property. Mutual fund dividends are paid out of income, usually on a quarterly basis, from interest generated by a fund's investments. Also known as a dividend distribution.

Dividend Income

Dividends paid to shareholders in a publicly-traded company or mutual fund. Various factors, notably how long one has held the shares and whether one reinvests the dividend, determine whether dividend income is taxed as ordinary income or capital gains, or not taxed until one sells the shares. Dividend income is also called dividend distribution. See also: Dividend reinvestment plan.
