Redwood Trust, Inc. Announces Dividend Distribution Tax Information for 2013

MILL VALLEY, Calif., Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Redwood Trust, Inc. (NYSE: RWT) today announced tax information regarding its dividend distributions for 2013.

Shareholders should check the tax statements they receive from their brokerage firms to confirm the Redwood dividend distribution information reported in those statements conforms to the information reported here.  Set forth in this press release are Redwood's expectations with respect to federal income tax.  Shareholders should consult their tax advisors to determine the amount of taxes that should be paid on Redwood's dividend distributions for federal, state, and other income tax purposes.

All of the common stock dividend distributions paid during 2013 are reportable on shareholders' 2013 federal income tax returns, including four $0.28 per share quarterly regular dividend distributions. Thus, for 2013, Redwood shareholders that held stock for this entire period should report a total of $1.12 per share of common stock dividend distributions for federal income tax purposes. 

Under the federal income tax rules applicable to real estate investment trusts ("REITs"), Redwood's 2013 dividend distributions are expected to be characterized for income tax purposes as 89% ordinary income and 11% return of capital.  None of Redwood's 2013 dividend distributions are expected to be characterized for federal income tax purposes as long-term capital gain dividends. 

As a REIT, the portion of Redwood's dividend distributions that are characterized as ordinary income under the applicable federal income tax rules are generally taxed at full ordinary income tax rates.  The portion of Redwood's dividend distributions characterized as a return of capital under the applicable federal income tax rules are not generally taxable (provided it does not exceed a shareholder's tax basis in their Redwood shares), and it reduces a shareholder's basis for shares held at each quarterly distribution date (but not to below zero). 

The table below provides more detailed information on the expected federal income tax characterization for each of Redwood's common stock dividend distributions that were paid for 2013.
