Try the new on-line version of the
Federal REIT Tax Compendium—it's
complimentary for NAREIT members.
The “e-Compendium” contains the
entire text of all IRS revenue rulings,
revenue procedures, notices, private
letter rulings and technical advice
memoranda relating to REITs. Also,
you can use the key word and subject
matter indexes to locate applicable
authorities. A new feature for 2007 allows
you to enter a revenue ruling number to
find where it has been cited in other
IRS guidance.
