Dividend Information

The tax treatment of Ingersoll Rand's distribution (dividends vs. return of capital) is reported to U.S. shareholders on Form 1099. This form is mailed to U.S. shareholders in February 2015 for 2014. The tax treatment of the distribution (dividends vs. return of capital) for the current year is not determined until after the end of the fiscal year. For U.S. tax purposes only, Ingersoll Rand's 2014 distribution to shareholders is classified under the U.S. Tax Code as follows:

  • 100% is a dividend pursuant to Section 301(c) of the U.S. Tax Code.

Ingersoll Rand’s 2013 distribution to shareholders was also classified under the U.S. Tax Code as 100% of a dividend pursuant to Section 301(c) of the U.S. Tax Code. While our reasonable assumptions throughout 2013 were that the 2013 distribution to our shareholders was expected to be a nontaxable return of capital, as a result of internal transactions at the end of 2013 associated with the spinoff of our commercial and residential security businesses, we determined after the end of our fiscal year that the 2013 distribution was a dividend to our shareholders.

Please also note that pursuant to U.S. Treasury Regulations, there is a completed Form 8937 for each distribution that took place in 2012, which you can download below. Ingersoll Rand’s 2012 distribution to shareholders was classified 100% as a nontaxable return of capital (and reduction of a U.S. shareholder’s tax basis) pursuant to Section 301(c) of the U.S. Tax Code to the extent of a U.S. shareholder’s tax basis in each of its Ingersoll-Rand plc shares, with any remaining amount being taxed as capital gain.

Please also note that there is a completed Form 8937 for each distribution that took place in 2011, which you can download below as well. Ingersoll Rand’s 2011 distribution to shareholders was also classified 100% as a nontaxable return of capital.
