MLP Tax Guide: Key Issues And Benefits To Be Aware Of
Master Limited Partnerships, or MLPs have become an increasingly popular equity class, and for good reason. With most MLPs concentrated in the midstream sector (i.e. gathering, storage, and transportation of oil & gas), the business model for many MLPs is built around long-term contracted, fixed-fee, tollbooth style cash flow.
