    If Bush provision makes it, will REIT's

    Trusts are pass thru operations:
    1) Not eligible for favorable dividends tax rate
    2) fed tax: income and dividend not same since depletion and depreciation deductions. Sponsor should give details.
    3) state tax: the nightmare. My understanding is you have to file personal state tax returns in each state the entity does business in. Its not the dollar amounts but the paperwork!
    4) governance: voting power given to entity whose interest not necesarily same as owners. I generally avoid even stocks with multiple voting classes. I have no objection to management having voting power thru ownership, but cant accept voting power separated from ownership interest. Too often shareholders interests are ignorred for personal interests of control holders.
