For tax purposes, 80 to 100% of TYG's 2022 distributions, 55 to 75% of NTG's 2022 distributions, 10 to 30% of TTP's 2022 distributions, 35 to 55% of NDP's 2022 distributions and 20 to 40% of TPZ's 2022 distributions are expected to be characterized as dividend income, with the remainder as return of capital.

For book purposes, the source of distributions for TYG is estimated to be 0-10% ordinary income, with the remainder as return of capital, NTG is estimated to be 10-20% ordinary income, with the remainder as return of capital, and NDP is estimated to be approximately 40-50% ordinary income, with the remainder as return of capital.
You should not draw any conclusions about TTP's or TPZ's investment performance from the amount of these distributions or from the terms of TTP's or TPZ's distribution policy.
TTP and TPZ estimate that they have distributed more than their income and net realized capital gains; therefore, a portion of the distribution may be return of capital. A return of capital may occur, for example, when some or all of the money that you invested in TTP and TPZ is paid back to you. A return of capital distribution does not necessarily reflect TTP's and TPZ's investment performance and should not be confused with "yield" or "income."
TTP and TPZ will report the sources for their distributions at the time of the payment in the applicable Section 19(a) Notice. The amounts and sources of distributions TTP and TPZ report are only estimates and are not being provided for tax reporting purposes. The actual amounts and sources of the amounts for tax reporting purposes will depend upon TTP's and TPZ's investment experience during the remainder of their fiscal years and may be subject to changes based on tax regulations.
