- What is a REIT?
A Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) is a company, 75% of whose assets must consist of qualifying real estate investments and must meet a number of additional qualifications as set forth below. Based on the REIT qualifications, REITs generally own, and in most cases, operate income-producing real estate such as apartments, shopping centers, offices, medical facilities, storage facilities, hotels and warehouses. Some REITs also engage in financing real estate. In the case of Cedar Realty Trust, such real estate investments are focused primarily on (supermarket-anchored) shopping centers. The shares of a REIT are generally freely traded, usually on a major stock exchange. In addition to the qualifying assets test for REIT status, REITs are also required to meet certain distribution requirements. Thus, to maintain REIT status, the Company must generally distribute at least 90% of its otherwise-taxable income to its shareholders. If the Company meets both the qualifying assets test and the distribution requirements, it as a REIT will generally not be subject to Federal income tax at the corporate level. REIT dividends generally do not qualify for the reduced tax on corporate dividend distributions and are therefore normally taxed at regular rates.
