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.

Learn more about how to add master limited partnerships to your portfolio with the latest in-depth analysis in the archive below. For a detailed understanding of the MLPs, including what they do, how they are taxed and the best plays to consider for your portfolio, check out our free guide: MLPs: High Yields and Low Taxes.
