* In order to comply with the requirements of Section 19 of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, each of the Funds noted above posted to the DTC bulletin board and sent to their shareholders of record as of the applicable record date a Section 19 notice with the previous dividend payment. The Section 19 notice was provided for informational purposes only and not for tax reporting purposes. This information can be found in the “Closed-End Funds” section of www.blackrock.com. As applicable, the final determination of the source and tax characteristics of all distributions in 2012 will be made after the end of the year.

BlackRock Enhanced Government Fund, Inc. (NYSE:EGF) (“EGF”) 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 EGF’s Board of Directors. Under its Plan, EGF 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, EGF will distribute long-term capital gains and/or return capital to its shareholders in order to maintain a level distribution.

EGF’s estimated sources of the distribution paid as of December 18, 2012 and for its current fiscal year are as follows:
Estimated Allocations as of December 18, 2012

EGF 1     $0.765000     $0.611007 (80%)     $0 (0%)     $0 (0%)     $0.153993 (20%)

1 EGF estimates that it has distributed more than its income and net realized 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 EGF’s investment performance and should not be confused with ‘yield’ or ‘income’. When distributions exceed total return performance, the difference will reduce EGF’s net asset value per share.

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 EGF’s investment experience during the remainder of its fiscal year and may be subject to changes based on tax regulations. EGF 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.
