the income is distributed as a capital gain that is taxed at 40% of the ordinary

tax bracket x income tax rate = taxed capital gains

0.40% x 0.40%

= 0.16%

(1 - 0.16) x 0.6 (pre-tax return proportion of capital gains)

= 0.504 x 0.1 (pre-tax return)

= 0.0504

(1 - 0.6) x 0.1

= 0.04

= 0.6

0.04 x 0.60 + 0.0504
