REIT [Real Estate Investment Trust]:REITs pool the capital of many investors to indirectly invest in a professionally managed commercial real estate portfolio. REITs must pay distributions to stockholders equal to at least 90% of “REIT taxable income,” subject to certain adjustments. REITs are not typically subject to federal corporate income taxes, thus eliminating the “double taxation” (taxation at both corporate and stockholder levels) generally applicable to a corporation. REITs are considered an option for generating income.Source:Inland

A limited liability company (LLC) is a corporate structure whereby the members of the company cannot be held personally liable for the company’s debts or liabilities. Limited liability companies are essentially hybrid entities that combine the characteristics of a corporation and a partnership or sole proprietorship. While the limited liability feature is similar to that of a corporation, the availability of flow-through taxation to the members of an LLC is a feature of partnerships.
