Monthly Tax-Free
Distribution Per Share

NTX PrC Nuveen Texas Quality Income Municipal Fund MTP .019167

Monthly distributions from Nuveen's municipal closed-end funds and portfolios are generally exempt from regular Federal income taxes, and monthly distributions of single-state municipal funds and portfolios are also generally exempt from state and, in some cases, local income taxes for in-state residents. Unless otherwise stated in the funds' objectives, monthly distributions of the municipal funds and portfolios may be subject to the Federal Alternative Minimum Tax for some shareholders.*

Each of the six funds below has adopted a managed distribution program. The goal of a fund’s managed distribution program is to provide shareholders relatively consistent and predictable cash flow by systematically converting its expected long-term return potential into regular distributions. As a result, regular distributions throughout the year will likely include a portion of expected long-term gains (both realized and unrealized), along with net investment income and/or a return of capital. Important points to understand about Nuveen fund managed distributions are:

  • Each Nuveen fund seeks to establish a relatively stable distribution rate that roughly corresponds to the projected total return from its investment strategy over an extended period of time. However, investors should not draw any conclusions about a fund’s past or future investment performance from its current distribution rate.
  • Actual returns will differ from projected long-term returns (and therefore a fund’s distribution rate), at least over shorter time periods. Over a specific timeframe, the difference between actual returns and total distributions will be reflected in an increasing (returns exceed distributions) or a decreasing (distributions exceed returns) fund net asset value.
  • Each quarter’s distributions are expected to be paid from some or all of the following sources:
    • net investment income (regular interest and dividends),
    • realized capital gains, and
    • unrealized gains, or, in certain cases, a return of principal (non-taxable distributions)
  • A non-taxable distribution is a payment of a portion of the fund’s capital. When fund returns exceed distributions, it may represent portfolio gains earned, but not realized as a taxable capital gain. In periods when fund returns fall short of distributions, it will represent a portion of your original principal unless the shortfall is offset during other time periods over the life of your investment (previous or subsequent) when the fund’s total return exceeds distributions.
  • Because distribution source estimates are updated quarterly based on a fund’s performance and forecast for its current fiscal year (which is the calendar year for all the funds listed below), these estimates may differ from both the tax information reported to shareholders in their fund’s 1099 statement, as well as the ultimate economic sources of distributions over the life of their investment.

All of Nuveen’s closed-end funds seek to pay stable distributions at rates that reflect each fund’s past results and projected future performance. During certain periods, each fund may pay distributions at a rate that may be more or less than the amount of net investment income actually earned by the fund during the period. If a fund cumulatively earned more than it has paid in distributions, it holds the excess in reserve as undistributed net investment income (UNII) as part of the fund’s net asset value (NAV). Conversely, if a fund has cumulatively paid distributions in excess of its earnings, the excess constitutes negative UNII that is likewise reflected in the fund’s NAV. Each fund will, over time, pay all of its net investment income as distributions to shareholders. The funds’ positive or negative UNII balances are disclosed from time to time in their periodic shareholder reports, and are also on

In addition, distributions for certain funds investing in real estate investment trusts (REITs) may later be characterized as capital gains and/or a return of capital, depending on the character of the dividends reported to each fund after year-end by REIT securities held by each fund. Each January, updated tax characteristics for affected funds are posted to the Nuveen web site and mailed to shareholders via form 1099-DIV during the first quarter of the year.
