Description:

This webinar will provide tax advisors and real estate counsel with a review of the various organizational, operational, and federal tax requirements that must be met by real estate investment trusts (REITs), and will address the reasons for and the difficulties surmounted in recent conversions to REIT status by several public companies.

Description

As the REIT market continues to expand, tax advisors and real estate counsel are increasingly called upon to advise on transactions involving REITs. Counsel must prepare to address the tax and legal challenges while assisting their clients in confronting and managing the attendant risks.

REITs must satisfy complex IRS requirements regarding the organization of the entity, its income, assets and distribution of income, and its ownership base. REITs also enjoy tax advantages, such as no entity level tax and the ability to attract tax-exempt and foreign investors. Tax-exempt investors and sovereign wealth funds can reduce or eliminate the tax they would otherwise pay when investing in U.S. real estate.

Counsel should understand key issues, including rules for REIT subsidiaries (QRSs and TRSs) and UPREIT structures, and special rules for REITs that own partnership and LLC interests.

Listen as our authoritative panel of tax and real estate attorneys guides you through navigating the complex tax rules for structuring REIT investments and the tax treatment of REIT transactions.

  • What does counsel need to know when involved in a potential conversion to a REIT?
  • What are the economic limitations and benefits of REIT status?

Upon completing this seminar you will understand the organizational and operational tax benefits of REITS, the REIT income and asset tests, distribution requirements, and best practices for confronting and managing risk.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
