This article from Geraci Law Firm covers the importance of decision making with Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) in the context of the sunset provision of the 199A Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The article highlights the options available to investors who have yet to select a REIT, summarizing the effects that the sunset provision may have on REITs.

The sunset provision is a portion of the 199A Tax Cuts and Jobs Act which may be under expansion in the near future. It reduces the workload for investors and provides for temporary tax benefits for participating securities, however, these benefits will be phased out and sunset in 2026. As the sunset provision nears, investors should consider how this may affect their investments in terms of financial benefits.

Analyzing the effects of the sunset provision can help investors make an informed decision when it comes to selecting and investing in a REIT. The escalating amount of taxes, estimated to increase from 20% to 27.5% by 2025, is an example of an effect that investors should consider. Furthermore, the expiration date for the tax credits, which currently ranges from 2022-2026, spans over 4 years, and may have downstream implications on REIT investments.

The article concludes that, with the sunset provision of the 199A Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, investors should carefully analyze their decision-making and examine their options in terms of investing in a REIT. As REITs provide numerous tax benefits, it is prudent for investors to understand the provisions of the sunset law and consider their impact on the financial returns they expect to generate. This will enable them to make sound decisions when investing in a REIT which will secure their financial future.
