PwC Partner Highlights State Tax Issues Impacting REITs

Sam Melehani, partner at PwC, joined for a video interview during REITWise 2015: NAREIT’s Law, Accounting and Finance Conference held in Phoenix.

Melehani commented on two recent developments at the state level regarding the taxation of REITs. First, he noted that proposed legislation in Hawaii to abolish the dividends paid deduction for REITs has been deferred, pending further study.  “Hopefully they’ll decide that there’s a lot more benefit to the REIT than that they get a dividends paid deduction,” he said.
