No. The process used to calculate dividends is a bit complicated and depends on variables that change year to year like which members bought which products and how much. For these reasons it is not possible to accurately estimate a member's dividend amount.
Dividends for members are paid April 15th each year. Dividends are based on January 1st through December 31st purchases of the previous year. For example the dividend check for purchases made January through December 2020 would be paid out in April 2021.
If your stores are under one company name and/or federal tax ID number they are processed under one member account and receive one dividend check. Each tax ID number receives its own check.
Yes! Any purchases made during the calendar year will be eligible for dividends as long as dues are received before the cutoff date which is typically September 1st.
The dividend will be mailed to the last paid member on record. Dividends cannot be split or pro-rated. If the buyer and seller wish to split this income, that is between the two parties.
The IRS Form 1099-PATR reports any dividend that was paid last year.
