Unit Distributions Tax Treatment
The Partnership has elected to be treated as a C-Corporation for tax purposes (our investors receive the standard 1099 form and not a K-1 form).
The chart below describes the distributions made by Capital Product Partners L.P. during 2019 and the reporting of such payments on United States Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") Form 1099.
Please note that determination of whether payments constitute a dividend or a nondividend distribution is not made for U.S. federal income tax purposes until the end of the fiscal year. If you are a U.S. unitholder and you received an IRS Form 1099 that does not set forth such amounts, you should contact your broker or your tax advisor.
Holders are directed to consult their own tax advisors to determine the appropriate tax treatment with respect to the distributions.
