Definition of Subchapter M

A portion of the Internal Revenue Code, Subchapter M allows mutual funds to avoid being taxed three times – once on the fund level, once on the portfolio and once at the shareholder level.

They can do so by meeting three criteria. They must make most of their earnings through investments, distribute those earnings to shareholders and break their holdings up among at least 12 issuers. [1]
