Q: I just noticed on my transaction history, as did Geoff (Dec. 17), that a sizable portion of the money I received for Dream Global is listed as a dividend. I too had assumed the transaction to be mostly a capital gain, and sold VET at a loss to offset the gain. If this $10 per unit truly is a dividend, then I, like many others I`m sure, will have a big chunk of unexpected taxable income to choke on! (The circular did mention a bit of an extra distribution without mentioning an amount, but made it sound modest.) For me, as a senior of modest income, this`ll mean a year of lost government benefits. Live and learn, eh. Next time, just sell as soon as the offer is made!
