Hello, I received dividends from Old Mutual PLC Stock which is traded on Johannesburg Stock Exchange. I received R3718.82 which will probably convert to about $450.00 once I get it here. I have since sold the shares in a full liquidation of all my South African assets and since they could not transfer the sales to US only to UK.

My question is whether these are qualified shares?

My husband and I have annual income of about $46 000 so my understanding is that these may still be taxed at 0% anyway.

NPVAdvisor :

at your income level, you would be in the 15% bracket if file jointly, thereby making your capital gains tax rate for 2012, zero

NPVAdvisor :

We'll still be able to continue a dialogue, just not in real time
