    Dividend cut?

    "By paying out of principal it's turning after
    tax money into taxable dividends", I don't believe
    that is correct. It is called "return of capital" and
    is listed as such on Schedule D of your 1040 tax
    form as such. Return of capital lowers your cost basis
    that you paid for the stock. On Schedule B you list
    the actual dividend you received not including the
    return of capital.

    Hope this helps.
