REITs -- What Percentage?
#31
Not at all. It is more like you can pay me now or you can pay me later. But it is really better than that. Since REITs pay ordinary dividends, they are taxed at your marginal tax rate. But the taxes due on ROC both get deferred and get taxed at the favorable capital gains rate of 15% if held for a year or longer.
