How You’re Taxed

Lofty’s tokenized rental properties are largely subject to income tax. Meaning that investors are only expected to trigger a taxable event once one of their properties generates income.

The exact tax rate of this investment depends on the type of income generated as well as the taxpayer's country of residence, personal income tax bracket and whether the investment is held in a tax-advantaged account.  At the end of each tax year, Lofty AI sends investors a K-1 form to file their tax returns.

In the event that an investor sells their Lofty tokens, the returns would also be subject to capital gains tax. Federal, state and local taxes also affect the total tax burden associated with the investment. For more clarity, consult with an advisor before making an investment.

10-37%

Income Tax

Rental income is taxed as ordinary income.

0-20%

Capital Gains

The sale of Lofty tokens incurs capital gains tax.

Lofty is the best way for people like my self who can not afford to buy whole properties. Earning a passive income from investing in small shares of property is the future.

A super easy way to fractionally invest in Real-estate. From start to finish, they have made is simple to validate who I am, to select a property and they have provide a variety of payment methods for purchasing. I like getting paid daily for the rentals and being able to cash out or use it to purchase more property.

The team at Lofty is by far the most professional and responsive group of people I have ever spoken with. They are deeply devoted to this platform and making sure it exceeds the expectations of the investor group. It is by far my safest and most enjoyable investment, exceeding crypto and the stock market. They have taken away all the friction of investing in real estate and made it affordable and accessible to everyone. Will be an investor for life!
