Feedback: Mutual funds can generate taxable income in one of two ways:
- Through the distribution of interest income, dividends, and capital gains realized by the fund
- Through any capital gains realized when the investor sells the fund
When mutual funds are held outside a registered plan such as a registered retirement savings plan or a registered retirement income fund, the fund holder is sent either a T3 form (for unitholders) or a T5 form (for shareholders).
请问老师这题为什么选d？他卖出了share得到的$5 capital gain为什么不算呢？

第一题，首先这是个mutual fund，这个distribution里面包括dividend和capital gain。因为这是fund manager的操作，fund manager buys and sells stocks throughout the year for the fund. If the manager sells a stock for more than it was bought, the capital gain that results is passed on to the fund holder。这里的tax slip针对的是fund manager的操作所产生的盈利。这个盈利会以distribution的形式给投资人。
