The move follows similar one-time dividends by hundreds of companies to take advantage of current dividend tax rates before Jan. 1, when they could rise as part of a resolution to the looming "fiscal cliff."

Limited Brands' special dividend will be paid on Dec. 26 to shareholders of record at the close of business on Dec. 20.
