Master Limited Partnerships
Master limited partnership (MLP) investments offer a simple value proposition: tax-advantaged high yields and strong recession-resistant growth potential.
MLPs allow investors to defer much of their personal income tax liability for years into the future or, in many cases, indefinitely. Unlike regular corporations, a master limited partnership doesn’t pay traditional corporate-level tax. Instead, these partnerships pass through the majority of their income to investors in the form of regular quarterly distributions. In other words, 80 to 90 percent of the distribution you receive from the MLP is tax-deferred.
