Effect of the action: The cash payments made by Microchip to its shareholders in calendar 2013 and 2014 should be treated as return of capital. Under Internal Revenue Code section 301(c), to the extent shareholders have basis in their shares, the return of capital should be treated as a reduction in basis. To the extent the return of capital exceeds a shareholder’s basis in their shares, the amount of such excess should generally be treated as a gain from the sale or exchange of property.
