Las Vegas Sands Corp.(NYSE:LVS) has declared a special dividend of $2.75 per share and hiked their annual regular dividend by 40% to $1.40 per share. That will yield a bonanza for billionaire Sheldon Adelson and his wife who own 52% of the casino, enabling the pair to earn about $1.2 billion on the special dividend and another $611 million every year. The increased dividends have likely been declared in anticipation of an increase in dividend taxes from the current 15%.
