Information for Investors Regarding Tax Reporting The PowerShares DB commodity and currency funds (eleven in total) provide their returns by holding exchange traded futures contracts and US T-Bills. The IRS requires these funds to be marked to market at the end of each year, at which time investors are apportioned their pro rata shares of gains or losses.
Please note that neither Deutsche Bank nor its affiliates provides legal, tax or accounting advice. The above also does not address shareholders with certain special situations (as described in the relevant prospectus). For full information, investors should read the prospectus for the relevant fund. Investors also should consult their tax advisors.
