Distributions are generally taxable to shareholders in the year in which they are declared by CION. CION intends to update shareholders quarterly with an estimated percentage of its distributions that resulted from taxable ordinary income. Following the end of each year, CION provides a Form 1099-DIV and a tax status letter to shareholders that describe the taxability of the distributions paid in the preceding year, including a breakdown between ordinary income and capital gains. Participants in CION’s distribution reinvestment plan are taxed on the distributions as if they had received cash. For information on the tax status of the prior year’s distributions, please visit our Tax Information tab. For information about taxes in respect of distributions received by you, please consult your own tax advisor.
