CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwired – Sept. 24, 2013) – Inter Pipeline Ltd. (“Inter Pipeline”) (TSX:IPL) announced today the following tax information in relation to cash distributions declared to unitholders from January 2013 to August 2013 while Inter Pipeline was structured as a limited partnership. Additional tax information relating to Inter Pipeline as a corporation, for the period September 2013 to December 2013, will be provided in early 2014.
From January 2013 to August 2013, Inter Pipeline Fund declared cash distributions totalling $0.7475 per unit. The 2013 taxable portion amounts to $0.08423 per unit or 11.27% of total cash distributions. The return of capital component in 2013 was $0.66327 per unit or 88.73%.
Unitholders holding Class A units within a tax-free savings account, registered retirement savings plan, registered retirement income fund, deferred profit sharing plan, registered education savings plan or other similar type of deferral plan should not report any income related to cash distributions on their 2013 income tax return. Class A units held outside a deferred plan are taxable.
Unitholders should be aware that their participation in Inter Pipeline Fund’s historical Premium Distribution™ and Distribution Reinvestment Plan does not relieve them of any liability for Federal and Provincial income taxes in Canada arising from these distributions, whether re-invested or received as cash.
A breakdown of Inter Pipeline Fund’s January to August 2013 distributions is illustrated in the following table:
|Percent of Total Cash Distributions Declared||$ per Class A unit|
|Foreign Interest Income||12.06421||0.09018|

Pursuant to the corporate conversion that occurred in September 2013, unitholders received one common share of Inter Pipeline in exchange for each Class A unit held. Former unitholders may elect to exchange Class A units for common shares, from a Canadian federal income tax perspective, on a tax-deferred rollover basis. A tax election form must be properly completed and submitted to Inter Pipeline on or before December 1, 2013 in order to realize the tax-deferred rollover. The tax election form and other additional tax information is available on our website at www.interpipeline.com. Unitholders are advised to consult their own tax advisors as to their particular income tax situation.
