pickel. If you are a U.S. citizen, you will pay U.S. federal income tax on the dividend from HE. Then, if you live in a state which has an income tax, you will pay a state income tax on the HE dividend.
Hawaii will not tax you...(unless you live there).....they have already taxed HE before the dividend was paid.
Now you know why a dividend isn't always the best way to grow wealth.
