U.S. Government Securities
Mutual fund dividends that include income from securities issued by the U.S. government or other federal agencies (collectively, “U.S. Government Securities”) may be exempt from state income taxes. A portion of the ordinary income dividends paid to you by the Weitz Funds may qualify for this pass-through exemption. State law varies as to whether and what percentage of dividend income attributable to U.S. Government Securities is exempt from state income tax. California, Connecticut, and New York require that a mutual fund maintain certain minimum investments in U.S. Government Securities in order for the dividend income derived from these obligations to be exempt from state income tax. The Funds listed above with an asterisk (*) met these requirements for calendar year 2023.  Please consult your tax adviser for more information.

Qualified Dividends
The amount eligible for qualified dividend treatment is shown above as a percentage of total ordinary income. This amount is reported to you on your Form 1099-DIV, Box 1b. Qualified dividends are taxed at a maximum federal tax rate of 20%. A shareholder must satisfy a 61-day holding period with respect to any distributions of qualifying dividends in order to obtain the benefit of the lower tax rate. Please consult your tax adviser for more information.
