    what is the taxation rate on the income reported by comnpanies

    mReits only pay tax on income they don't pay out as dividends, so tax is only paid at level (either the corporate or individual level).

    Regular corporations pay tax on all income, whether or not they pay dividends. So that income is taxed twice (once at the corporate level and again at the individual level).

    • That is not true. That is like saying you subtract the dividends paid out from income and that is the number they pay tax on. If you look at the IRS form you will see the list of deductions available to reduce the income they pay tax on. In accounting it is called above the line and below the line.
