I have just received a dividend of 0.11 $, from which 15% withholding tax was deducted. On the same day I received a dividend of 3,40$ from the same company, but without paying withholding tax. (for 3 shares)
Why is the big payment tax-free? And why don't all companies do it like that?
FYI I am in Germany and the company is located in the US.
Edit (adding some more info):
As you can see, in the 2nd payment I didn't pay withholding tax (Quellsteuer). (Yes I still "payed" Kapitalsteuer, but I still saved the 15% withholding tax)
