Otlmrwise, the contribution in- eludes only the excess of the amount paid over the fair mar- ket value of the meal and enter- tainment. Qualified political contributions may be deducted up to $50, ($100 if married filing jointly) or one may be taken as a credit against your tax up to $12.50 ($25 if married filing jointly). Q. How do you report divi- dends received on mutual fund shares? A. It all depends on the type of dividend yon' receive from the ~md. Ordinary dividends or taxable dividends are the most common type and any dividends you receive can be assumed to be an, ordinary divi- cbmd unless the fund indicates otherwise. Except for the first $100 of such dividends which generally may be excluded from income, ordinary dividends are fidly taxable. Some funds distribute capital gain dividends. These are treat- ed as long term capital gains and are taxed at a more favor- able rate that ordinary dividends. However, these capital gain divi- dends do not qualify for the S100 dividend exclusion. A fund distribution not out of earnings and profits is not taxed. It is a return of your investment, or capital, in stock of the mu- tual fund. A mutual fund will notify yo~ on Form 1099DIV or by written notice as to the amount of gross dividends, capi- tal gain dividends, return of cap- ital, etc., that you must report on your income tax return. For more details, see IRS Publication 564, "Tax Informa- tion on Mutual Fund Distribu tions." It's available free from your IRS office. Q. Can condominium owners deduct amoants paid for real estate taxes and mortgage in- terests ?. A. Yes. I,f you itemize de- ductions on Schedule A (Form 1040), such payments are de- ductible.
