my point is should I be paying these taxes, when the company was uk the dividend was not tax under our capital gains, it was under the limit for tax.
Your question was in respect of dividends received net of a withholding tax. Such income is taxed under Income Tax. Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is a tax chargeable on a gain made on a share, and indeed other property as well, when it is sold. There is an Annual Exempt Allowance for CGT.
I am at a loss to understand the poor rating given by the questioner. I note that my last post has not yet been read. This post explains the taxation principles regarding shares in an alternative manner. I suggest that the rating requires amendment to a level 3 or higher.
I know that there is a Annual exempt allowance for CGT in the UK, Therefor should I not be paying this Tax in the USA,under the Treaties.?
