Important Information About Your Wasatch Funds Taxes is Now Available in Our 2011 Tax Guide


Dear Shareholders,

Because tax time can sometimes be confusing, we wanted to share a summary of the materials you should expect to receive in order to make your 2011 tax reporting related to Wasatch Funds as easy as possible.

Regular Dividends & Capital Gains

If you were a shareholder of one or more of the below Wasatch Funds in a non-retirement account during 2011 and you received a distribution amount greater than $10, you can expect to receive a 1099-DIV form in the mail and/or posted to your online account on or before January 31, 2012:

  • Wasatch Emerging India Fund (WAINX)
  • Wasatch Global Opportunities Fund (WAGOX)
  • Wasatch Heritage Growth Fund (WAHGX)
  • Wasatch International Opportunities Fund (WAIOX)
  • Wasatch Large Cap Value Fund (FMIEX)
  • Wasatch Long/Short Fund (FMLSX)
  • Wasatch Small Cap Growth Fund (WAAEX)
  • Wasatch Strategic Income Fund (WASIX)
  • Wasatch Ultra Growth Fund (WAMCX)
  • Wasatch-1st Source Income Fund (FMEQX)
  • Wasatch-Hoisington U.S. Treasury Fund (WHOSX)

Note: If you owned any other Wasatch fund during 2011, you will not receive a Form 1099-DIV because the remaining Wasatch funds did not have a distribution in 2011.

Tax Gains/Losses

If you sold or exchanged shares of any Wasatch fund during 2011, you can download a PDF of the 1099-B and Cost Basis statement for your account through your online account access; they will be available on the site no later than January 31, 2012.   The paper copies of the 1099-B and Cost Basis statement may not arrive at your address by U.S. Mail until a few days after January 31.

Tax Exempt Dividends

If you owned one or more of the below funds during 2011, you should be aware that interest on some securities held in these funds may be exempt from state and local taxation:

  • Wasatch-Hoisington U.S. Treasury Fund (WHOSX)
  • Wasatch-1st Source Income Fund (FMEQX)
  • WA-Federated Money Market Account (ACMXX)

Please visit for a breakdown of the percentage of total ordinary dividends you received that were attributable to interest on these U.S. government and government agency securities.  This information will not be sent via mail or posted to your online account.
