Description:

REITs are the investment vehicle of choice for holding interests in a diversified portfolio of real estate properties, as opposed to owning an interest in a single property.

Estimates are that more than $300 billion are currently invested in publicly traded REITs and more than $70 billion are invested in non-traded REITs. As the interest in alternative assets rises and real estate is being increasingly examined as presenting a significant gain opportunity given current market conditions, more investors, including nontraditional real estate investors, such as retirement plans and charitable organizations, are examining the ownership of REIT shares as part of their portfolio.

Learn about the uses, advantages and disadvantages of the REIT structure for owning real estate. Hear a discussion of the basic tax rules that relate to REIT formation and operation, including the organizational rules, asset tests, income tests, distribution requirements, and the taxation of the REIT and its shareholders.

Certain structural alternatives associated with REITs, including the use of subsidiaries, QRSs and TRSs, and partnerships, UPREITs and DOWNREITs, will be reviewed. A discussion of changes made to the REIT provisions in the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015 (signed 12/18/2015) will be included.

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.
