Form 8937: Organizational Actions Affecting Cost Basis of Securities


Issuers of corporate securities are required to complete Internal Revenue Service Form 8937 to report organizational actions, including tax-free reorganizations and nontaxable distributions that affect the basis of the securities involved in the organizational action.

Understanding Mutual Funds and Taxes

The more you know about the taxable events that could result from investing in mutual funds, the better you can prepare for them.

Understanding Cost Basis

It is important to understand the tax implications of buying and selling mutual funds. As a result of recent regulatory changes, Janus is required to track and provide cost basis information to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and we want to help investors understand the requirements and their options. Redemptions of Covered Shares will utilize the method currently listed on the account. Additionally, once shares have been averaged and the revocation period has ended, those particular shares will retain the average cost basis. However, method changes will apply to all new share purchases.

Please consider the charges, risks, expenses and investment objectives carefully before investing. Please see a prospectus , or if available, a summary prospectus containing this and other information. Read it carefully before you invest or send money.

Any tax or legal information provided is a summary of our current understanding and interpretation of the current income tax regulations and is not exhaustive. Investors should consult their tax advisor or legal counsel for advice and information concerning their specific situation.
