  1. Wow! Talk about a big payout month!! Congrats on the dividend income, DH.


    1. Hi R2R

      April is my favorite month for dividend income, as almost all of my annual dividend paying companies pay dividends in April.

      Thanks for reading and sharing!

  2. Congratulations. Very good results

  3. What a month. And a nice year on year increase as well!

  4. That's a large chunk of payments all in the same month. Do you get taxed immediately when you are paid those annual dividends? I was curious how you were calculating your net dividend income. Keep up the good work!

    1. Hi AAI

      Yes, from those annual dividends I get taxed immediately, because those all are Finnish companies. In Finland tax is 25.5% on dividends (85% of dividend are tax capital income and capital gain tax rate is 30%). From Finnish companies I pay that 25.5% tax immediately. From foreign companies it depends in which country the company has HQ. (international tax treaty). For example, dividends from US company, I pay 15% immediately and that rest 10,5% after I have made my tax report for that year. ETF’s distributions aren’t dividends, so from those my tax at the end is 30%.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  5. What a month! Nice annual dividends. Also a nice year on year increase as well! Keep up the good work.

  6. DH,

    Wow. Holy crap, my friend. Now that's what I'm talking about. :)

    I'd be celebrating a big month of dividends like that with....a couple of stock purchases. I'm boring! :)

    Best wishes.

  7. I agree with DM...Wow! To say you an a good month is an understatement. Looks like you are well on your way to your goal of receiving € 6.000 in dividends this year. You are more than half way to you goal and we are only through with 1/3 of the year. Way to go! Wish you continued success.
