Exempt Dividends from Certain Qualifying Mutual funds Derived From U.S. Government Obligations
Enter the total amount of exempt dividends received from a qualifying mutual fund that are derived from U.S. government obligations. A mutual fund is a qualifying fund if, at the close of each quarter of its taxable year, at least 50% of the value of its assets consists of U.S. government obligations. The percentage of dividends that are exempt dividends should be reported to you by the mutual fund. Do not enter the amount of dividend income derived from Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) bonds, Government National Mortgage Association (Ginnie Mae) bonds, and Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) securities. Federal law does not prohibit states from taxing income derived from these obligations, and this income is taxable for Connecticut income tax purposes.
Example: A qualifying mutual fund pays a dividend of $100. Of the distribution, 55% is attributable to U.S. Treasury bills and 45% to other investments. The amount that should be reported here is $55.
