    Government-controlled mortgage finance firm Freddie Mac on Tuesday said it will cut a check to the U.S. Treasury for $746 million, its smallest dividend to taxpayers since 2009. Freddie Mac reported a first quarter profit of $524 million, up from $227 million in the fourth quarter. The firm, along with competitor Fannie Mae, was bailed out by U.S. taxpayers in 2008 when a housing slump and financial crisis left it on the brink of insolvency. Since returning to profitability, the two firms have made quarterly dividend payments to the Treasury but those have begun to dwindle recently and executives have warned that further bailout funds might be required in the future.
