Inside This Issue


Rev. Proc. 2021-53 provides temporary guidance regarding the treatment of certain stock distributions by publicly offered REITs and RICs. Specifically, in recognition of the need for enhanced liquidity as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, this Rev. Proc. modifies the safe harbor provided in Rev. Proc. 2017-45, 2017-35 I.R.B. 216, by temporarily reducing the minimum required aggregate amount of cash that distributee shareholders may receive to not less than 10 percent of the total distribution in order for § 301 of the Code, by reason of § 305(b) of the Code, to apply to such distribution. This temporary modification is effective solely with respect to distributions declared by a publicly offered REIT or publicly offered RIC on or after November 1, 2021, and on or before June 30, 2022.
