The one REIT type that I like to hold in a taxable account are timber REITs. The two timber REITs that I have owned paid 80-100% of their distribution as long-term capital gains.

As a retiree and under the current tax federal tax law, I pay 0% federal tax on my first $40-45k in long-term capital gains and qualified dividends.

At the state level (Arkansas), I get to reduce my long-term capital gains by 50%. My state gives no advantage to qualified dividends of 199A.
