/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/
TORONTO, April 11, 2014 /CNW/ - Inovalis Real Estate Investment Trust (the "REIT") (TSX: INO.UN) announced today the following tax information for the distribution of the REIT payable every month for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014 (the "Distribution"). The following is based on the REIT's current estimate of taxable income for Canadian federal income tax purposes for the 2014 taxation year.
For Canadian federal income tax purposes, the REIT gives guidance that 75 percent of the Distribution can be considered to be a return of capital and 25 percent of the Distribution can be considered to be a distribution of trust income. The trust income portion of the Distribution is subject to Canadian withholding tax at a rate of 25 percent, subject to relief provided under an applicable income tax convention. The return of capital portion of the Distribution is exempt from Canadian withholding tax.
Until further notice, the REIT expects that future distributions will have the same ratio of taxable income to return of capital.
