|2.||What is a REIT?|
A REIT is a corporation or business trust that combines the capital of many investors to acquire or provide financing for all forms of real estate. A REIT serves much like a mutual fund for real estate in that retail investors obtain the benefit of a diversified portfolio under professional management. Its shares are freely traded, usually on a major stock exchange.
A REIT generally does not pay corporate income tax to the Internal Revenue Service, which is a unique feature shared only with mutual funds. Nearly all of a REIT's income can be distributed to shareholders, and there is no double taxation of the income to the shareholder.
Simon Property Group is a REIT specializing in the ownership, development, management, leasing, acquisition and expansion of income-producing retail real estate assets.
