Question

Suppose a stock pays a quarterly dividend of $3. You plan to hold a short position in the stock across the dividend ex-date. What is your obligation on that date? If you are a taxable investor, what would you guess is the tax consequence of the payment? (In particular, would you expect the dividend to be tax deductible?) Suppose the company announces instead that the dividend is $5. Should you care that the dividend is different from what you expected?
