Mutual funds typically distribute taxable capital gains to shareholders each December. To help make your tax preparation easier, we'll post 2013 distribution information for Vanguard mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) as soon as it's available over the next several weeks.

We'll update the schedule below with links to the distribution announcements as they become available between now and January 2014.

Notes:

  • All investing is subject to risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest.
  • Vanguard ETF Shares are not redeemable with the issuing fund other than in creation unit aggregations. Instead, investors must buy or sell Vanguard ETF Shares in the secondary market with the assistance of a stockbroker. In doing so, the investor may incur brokerage commissions and may pay more than net asset value when buying and receive less than net asset value when selling.
