At the time of the special dividend, Allscripts disclosed that in general the special dividend would be taxable as a dividend to the extent of current and accumulated earnings and profits of legacy Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc. through December 31, 2008, but that the amount of such earnings and profits could not be determined until after the end of 2008. Allscripts has now completed its review of Allscripts earnings and profits and has determined that, of the special cash dividend of $5.23 per share, the first 10.28%, or approximately $0.54 per share, is taxable as a dividend. Thereafter, the special cash dividend will generally be treated as a tax-free return of capital that reduces a stockholder's tax basis in its shares of Allscripts common stock to the extent of such tax basis and, after such basis has been reduced to zero, taxable as gain from the sale or exchange of Allscripts common stock. As required by applicable regulations, the special cash dividend had previously been reported on IRS Form 1099 as being entirely taxable. Amended IRS Forms 1099 to reflect this final tax treatment will be distributed.

The tax treatment of the special cash dividend will depend on the individual circumstances of each stockholder and stockholders are urged to seek advice from their tax advisor. For additional information on the tax treatment of the special cash dividend, you may refer to the section of the definitive proxy statement filed by Allscripts with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 21, 2008 entitled "Material U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences of the Transactions" beginning on page 64 of such proxy statement.
