Is there any one here who can give me an update on REIT's and their taxability.

Do REIT's pay tax and then distribute 90% of there profits?

Does the 1031 tax free exchange essentially eliminate them from paying taxes?

I've not seen an update on the new tax changes and Thanks in advance to anyone who has an update on this subject!

This is not really a income tax board except that a personal finance software can help with taxes.

But I am a REIT investor.

A REIT doesn't pay tax and does pay out at least 90% of earnings. A REIT might pay out more than 100% of earnings since there is a difference between earnings and funds-from-operations. The REIT might consider earnings to contain un-necessary charges since, for example, the REIT renovates property that is said to be depreciating. Of course depreciation is a non-cash charge.

Now a REIT dividend is not a qualified dividend but if the REIT gains in value while also paying a dividend then the investor will not mind.

REIT's might be currently risky with interest rates going up.

Well, this can be an activity post and so here is a link to KBH Investor Accounting:
