REIT Tax-Equivalent Distribution

This calculator will estimate the tax-equivalent distribution (TED) for an investment in a real estate investment trust (REIT). Investments in REITs are not tax free, but rather may be partially tax-deferred. TED, as set forth in this calculator, measures what an investor would have to earn on a fully taxable investment in order to match the distribution generated when a portion of a REIT's distribution represents return of capital (ROC). This calculator shows a REIT's hypothetical distribution and how ROC impacts tax equivalent distribution.
