Tax Liability Update

TYG has concluded its annual review of the K-1's received from the underlying MLP holdings, and as a result, has included an increase to current tax liability of $0.95 per share. TYG had unusually large MLP sales in March 2020, and as a result, incurred significant ordinary gains for the FYE 11/30/20. Ordinary gains are recognized each time MLP units are sold due to depreciation recapture. TYG estimates the tax liability associated with each ordinary gain based on the best available information at that time. With the recent receipt of the 2020 K-1's and the information they provide, TYG has revised its taxable income and expected current tax liability accordingly. The impact of this revision is reflected in NAV as of April 30th.

Tortoise Midstream Energy Fund, Inc. (NYSE: NTG) today announced that as of April 30, 2021, the company's unaudited total assets were approximately $278.3 million and its unaudited net asset value was $193.6 million, or $34.31 per share.
