Corporations distribute dividends from the equity account called retained
earnings, which records the accumulated profits of the company.
Dividends are not tax deductible to the payer; they represent the
conversion of corporation equity to investor income. This conversion
reduces the total equity of the corporation, which reduces the value of
each share of common stock.
