Follow my exemplary lead in defeating the entire tax structure. Always take the DRIP, but high and sell low. Reduce your income any way you can to drive down your tax liability. Eventually, you will pay very little tax or none at all. To paraphrase Mark Twain, this is the worst "guvmet" on the planet, with the exception of all the rest. Starve this evil American guvmet that has enslaved us all. Join the Tea Party. They have all the answers and will release them eventually.
This whole tax thing sucks. First of all as shareholders are owners of AGNC. The corporation is taxed on profits. The dividend is this distribution after the taxes are paid to the owners. So when we get taxed again on the distribution is the double tax, and if after that if that's not bad enough and if your make over $250K a year which included the dividends of all source your tax is going to be increase. The triple tax.
