In these six webinars, our REIT Practice professionals discuss everything you need to know about REITS, their pros and cons, potential pitfalls and much more.

The series starts with foundational information (e.g., what a REIT is, how one is formed, operational rules, how a REIT is taxed) and then moves on to advanced topics. They include planning for prohibited transactions; uses of taxable REIT subsidiaries; the various types of U.S. sourced income; foreign investors and various REIT structures; the general rules of FDAP and ECI and associated tax withholding requirements and use of treaties; the general application of FIRPTA and the available exceptions; and a comparison of the use of REITs as blockers to other structures for investment in US real estate.
