What type of dividend does KMI pay?


KMI is classified as a corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes. A distribution of cash by KMI to a stockholder who is a U.S. holder will generally be included in such U.S. holder’s income as ordinary dividend income to the extent of KMI’s current and accumulated ‘‘earnings and profits’’ as determined under U.S. federal income tax laws and regulations (also known as a “qualified dividend” for KMI).  A portion of the cash distributed to KMI shareholders by KMI may exceed KMI’s current and accumulated earnings and profits. Distributions of cash in excess of KMI’s current and accumulated earnings and profits will be treated first as a non-taxable return of capital reducing a U.S. holder’s adjusted tax basis in such U.S. holder’s shares of KMI common stock and, to the extent the distribution exceeds such stockholder’s adjusted tax basis, as capital gain from the sale or exchange of such shares of KMI common stock.
