12 b-1 fees are a percentage of a mutual fund’s assets used to defray marketing and distribution expenses. These fees are deducted from the overall mutual fund value and each fund owner is assessed these fees based on their number of shares. The amount of the fee is stated in the fund’s prospectus. 12 b-1 fees can range from .10% to as high as 1% of the annual account value.
