Tax Treatment Of My REIT Dividends: Part 1

I hear a lot of recommendations that I should hold my healthcare REITs in tax-advantaged accounts. The theory is the taxman will hit us hard if we hold these assets in taxable accounts. That’s because REITs shell out nonqualified dividends that get taxed like regular income. I touched on this briefly when I talked about where I keep my medical office buildings.

When Max OOP is out for an afternoon run through the neighborhood or avoiding elevators as I make my way through the corporate office, there are usually numbers going through my head. Instead of counting sidewalk squares like I used to, I have been trying to put that time to better use by thinking about things like my healthcare REITs. Those of us in the early retirement/financial independence community like to do fun stuff in...
