Kristin Myers, senior vice president of tax at Cousins Properties (NYSE: CSX), participated in a video interview at Nareit’s REITwise: 2019 Law, Accounting & Finance Conference in San Antonio.
Myers moderated a REITwise panel about day-to-day tax issues and said that services is the top issue for REIT tax directors. She also advised in-house tax staff to keep their external advisors involved on the front end, and not once there is a problem.
“That’s cheap money. You spend that to help solve problems before they happen,” Myers said.
