    in Legal

    REITs are a wonderful real estate investment vehicle, but they're are subject to significant  compliance issues involving tax and securities regulations.  While they are they deemed an attractive and chique vehicle to raise capital, develop property and operate real estate, there is a perception that a REIT is merely a high-powered partnership without tax implications that  traditional corporations are subject to.  This is not the case.  REITs are unique, complex corporations which hold real estate interest..


    Today, our guest, David Ford will talk about REITs and its importance in your practice of law. Dave Ford the principal of the Ford Law Firm, LLC, a transactional tax  law firm based in Columbia, SC, focuses on minimizing federal, state and local tax and transactional costs, while maximizing the client's wealth and achieving its business objectives. David serves on the Government Relations Committee and the State & Local Sub-Committee of the National Association of REITS, and is a member of the Urban Land Institute and the ABA’s REIT committee.
