Are investors taxed on dividends?

Yes – dividends are taxed as income, because they are money that you are making off of the money you have invested. If you received dividends of $10 or greater, you will have tax forms.

If you have any questions regarding taxes within your Stash account, please reach out to a tax professional.

Remember, not all stocks pay out dividends. And there’s no guarantee any stock will pay dividends in a quarter or year. Dividends may be subject to additional taxes, and are considered taxable income. Please refer to the IRS for additional information.
