Jan 17, 2023
SEATTLE, Jan. 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- For shareholders of Weyerhaeuser Company (NYSE: WY), the 2022 distributions totaling $2.17 per share on the Common Stock CUSIP 96216610 traded under the symbol WY are designated for income tax purposes as follows:
The company's tax return has not been filed for the year ended December 31, 2022. The dividend income tax allocations presented herein have been calculated using the best available information to date and as a result could change upon the filing of the company's tax return.
Because a portion of the company's 2022 distributions are designated as capital gain distributions and qualified dividends, they are not eligible for the 20 percent qualified business income deduction (Section 199A deduction).
The company will make supplemental information related to the tax treatment of its 2022 distributions, including Form 8937, available on its website no later than January 30, 2023.
The company anticipates that the tax treatment of its 2023 distributions may have a non-dividend component due to the supplemental dividend that it expects to declare and pay in the first quarter 2023.
Shareholders are encouraged to consult their tax advisor to determine the specific effect these distributions may have on their individual tax situation.
(1) For purposes of section 1061 of the Internal Revenue Code, the Company is disclosing that both the One Year and Three Year amounts are $0.00/share. Section 1061 is generally applicable to direct and indirect holders of "applicable partnership interests."
