United Mortgage Trust is a real estate investment trust (REIT). We invest in residential real estate loans. Investor funds are pooled to acquire and own these assets that might otherwise be outside the means of a typical investor.
We seek to produce net interest income from our mortgage investments while maintaining strict cost controls in order to generate net income for monthly distribution to our shareholders. We intend to continue to operate in a manner that will permit us to qualify as a Real Estate Investment Trust (“REIT”) for federal income tax purposes. As a result of that REIT status, we are permitted to deduct dividend distributions to shareholders, thereby effectively eliminating the “double taxation” that generally results when a corporation earns income (upon which the corporation is taxed) and distributes that income to shareholders in the form of dividends (upon which the shareholders are taxed).
