For what it is worth, Vanguard distributed $0.4625/share with NO Swiss withholding tax that reportedly is listed at 35%! Is it safe to assume that the Swiss had an epiphany and dropped “confiscation” of foreign stock owner’s dividends????
Additionally, Vanguard did NOT charge any fees for the dividend transaction! Thank you to all for this informative thread!
Folks, it was a distribution of capital, not a dividend, hence no tax. If your brokerage labeled it a "dividend", you may end up paying unnecessary taxes. My Fidelity account initially labeled it a dividend, but changed it to distribution of capital. Peter
