Tax Features

Company Tax Features

InfraREIT elected effective for its 2015 tax year to be treated as a REIT for federal income tax purposes. Our REIT election, assuming continued compliance with the applicable tests, will continue in effect for 2015 and subsequent taxable years.

REITs are generally not subject to federal corporate income taxes on taxable income distributed to stockholders. This treatment substantially eliminates the "double taxation" (at the corporate and security holder levels) that generally results from investment in a corporation.

A REIT is generally required to distribute, during the taxable year, an amount equal to at least 90 percent of its REIT taxable income (determined under Internal Revenue Code section 857(b)(2), without regard to the deduction for dividends paid). If the minimum distribution requirement is satisfied, the REIT is generally entitled to a deduction for dividends paid. Stockholders are then required to report the REIT dividend as ordinary income. A REIT stockholder's receipt of dividends generally will not qualify for the reduced tax rates applicable to qualified dividend income, or for the dividends received deduction.
In order to qualify as a REIT for federal income tax purposes, InfraREIT must continue to meet certain asset tests, income tests, distribution requirements and organizational requirements.  These are discussed in detail in the "Material Federal Income Tax Consequences" section of our Prospectus dated January 29, 2015.

Stockholder Tax Features

Stockholders of InfraREIT recognize income only if InfraREIT pays distributions from current or accumulated earnings and profits allocable to the particular shares held by a stockholder. Any such distributions out of earnings and profits will be taxable to a stockholder in the current period as dividend income. Distributions that exceed InfraREIT's current or accumulated earnings and profits constitute a return of capital to the extent of the stockholder's tax basis in its stock and then as capital gain.

Dividend income will be treated as "ordinary dividend income" for federal income tax purposes. Ordinary dividend income is treated as ordinary income, subject to a maximum income tax rate of 39.6%.  Additionally, a 3.8 percent tax will generally be imposed on the net investment income of certain individuals with an adjusted gross income in excess of $200,000 ($250,000 in the case of joint filers) and on the undistributed net investment income of certain estates and trusts. For these purposes, "net investment income" will generally include interest, dividends (including dividends paid with respect to our stock), annuities, royalties, rent, net gain attributable to the disposition of property not held in a trade or business (including net gain from the sale, exchange or other taxable disposition of shares of our stock) and certain other income, but will be reduced by any deductions properly allocable to such income or net gain.

There is no assurance that InfraREIT will make regular distributions or that InfraREIT's expectation regarding the tax character of its distributions will be realized.

Upon the sale of InfraREIT stock, a stockholder generally will recognize capital gain or loss measured by the difference between the sale proceeds received by the stockholder and the stockholder's tax basis in the stock sold, as adjusted to reflect prior distributions treated as return(s) of capital. Generally, such capital gain or loss will be long-term capital gain or loss if the stock was held as a capital asset for more than one year.
