BlackRock Enhanced Government Fund, Inc. Announces Estimated Sources Of Distributions

Today, BlackRock Enhanced Government Fund, Inc. (NYSE: EGF) (the “Fund”) announced that the Fund paid the following dividend per share:

 
Fund         Pay Date         Per Share
EGF         December 18, 2012         $0.065000
 

The Fund has adopted a level distribution plan (the “Plan”) and employs either a managed distribution or an option over-write policy to support a level distribution of income, capital gains and/or return of capital. The fixed amounts distributed per share are subject to change at the discretion of the Fund’s Board. Under its Plan, the Fund will distribute all available investment income to its shareholders, consistent with its primary investment objectives and as required by the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. If sufficient investment income is not available on a monthly basis, the Fund will distribute long-term capital gains and/or return capital to its shareholders in order to maintain a level distribution.

The Fund’s estimated sources of the distribution paid this month and for its current fiscal year are as follows:

1The Fund estimates that it has distributed more than its income and capital gains in the current fiscal year; therefore, a portion of your distribution may be a return of capital. A return of capital may occur, for example, when some or all of the shareholder’s investment is paid back to the shareholder. A return of capital distribution does not necessarily reflect a Fund's investment performance and should not be confused with ‘yield’ or ‘income’.

The amounts and sources of distributions reported are only estimates and are not provided for tax reporting purposes. The actual amounts and sources of the amounts for tax reporting purposes will depend upon the Fund’s investment experience during the remainder of its fiscal year and may be subject to changes based on tax regulations. The Fund will send you a Form 1099-DIV for the calendar year that will tell you how to report these distributions for federal income tax purposes.
