Matt Badiali’s “Freedom Checks” Revealed
Hi, I’m Matt Badiali.
Thousands of people are tuning in to watch my new video about “Freedom Checks” … odds are, you are one of them.
In it, I never reveal what these Freedom Checks are … because, to be frank, if I told you what they really are, you might not sign up for my Real Wealth Strategist newsletter.
But, if you ended up here, you are one of the few who would prefer to know exactly what they are before you sign up for anything.
I respect that.
After all, … are Freedom Checks a scam. Am I a scam?
The answers are a resounding “no” and “no” … but don’t take my word for it, let me prove it to you.
Let me show you exactly what these Freedom Checks are and who I am … and then, maybe, you will be convinced that I’m the real deal, and that joining my Real Wealth Strategist newsletter is the smart move for you.
Hence why I built this site for you, so that you can find out everything you need to know about me and these “Freedom Checks.”
These checks are the payments that come from Master Limited Partnerships.
Due to their unique tax structure, Master Limited Partnerships, or MLPs, are able to pass through 90% of their income to investors. These structures have helped fuel the energy business making America a freer nation … and they pay out incredible returns, helping Americans become financially free.
Hence why I call their payouts “Freedom Checks.”
There are roughly 568 of these MLPs which will pay out $34.6 billion over the next year.
As I mentioned, these MLPs are at the forefront of American energy independence.
That’s because in order to qualify as an MLP, a company must generate 90% of its income from the exploration, production or transportation of natural resources, most notably oil and gas.
These are the companies that explore for new oil and gas wells, transport oil and gas across vast pipeline networks and refine the oil and gas that comes from the Bakken Shale, the Permian Basin, the Marcellus Shale and other major oil and gas fields here in the US.
The Benefits of Investing In MLPs
First created in 1981, MLPs are not required to pay corporate taxes, which allow them to retain more cash to pay to investors. And these high cash payments mean investors looking for income can find MLPs with attractive yields, often in the 4% to 6% range, with some paying as high as a 10% yield.
Additionally, because MLPs are often in slow-growth industries like pipelines and refining, they are considered a low-risk investment that can earn steady, stable income from long-term contracts. This allows the MLPs to pay out consistent, reliable payments to investors.
And while oil and gas prices can fluctuate wildly, MLPs are generally unaffected because many of them operate as “toll roads” and get paid for transporting oil and gas no matter what the actual prices of oil and gas are. And a few even have clauses in their contracts that allows them to increase the “tolls” they charge for using their pipelines to keep up with inflation.
There are a lot of other benefits to owning MLPs which you can read about here.
Who Am I? …
I’m Matt Badiali. A geologist who has studied natural resources for more than 20 years. I’m an expert in the mining, energy and agricultural industries and have worked on drill rigs … owned oil wells … explored abandoned mines … all to make profitable investments in natural resources.
My research has taken me around the world, from Singapore to the Yukon … to Iraq, Hong Kong, Papua New Guinea … and the Mexican desert.
I’ve also taught geology at Duke University and the University of North Carolina. I’ve presented my findings at major geologic conferences as well as companies like Anadarko and Exxon Mobil.
Now, I provide my insights to readers of Banyan Hill Publishing, where I show readers how they can profitably invest in the commodity market. I’ve revealed how the U.S. oil industry is far from dead, how investor’s made 500%-plus gains the last time this rare signal flashed “go”, and why you must pay attention to the return of the gold bull market. And my flagship newsletter, Real Wealth Strategist, has nearly 100,000 loyal readers who have access to my model portfolio.
Get Monthly or Quarterly Distributions
The monthly or quarterly distributions from MLPs are very similar to traditional stock dividends. However, because they are treated as return of capital, instead of income, investors do not have to pay income taxes on them. (Read more about taxes here). And if an investor decides to sell his MLP investment, any profit from the sale is taxed at the lower capital gains rate, not the higher personal income rate, offering additional tax benefits to investors.
As an investor, you can purchase shares in an MLP just as easy as you can buy shares in Apple or Google. And just like a traditional dividend-paying stock, you will receive your distribution – your “freedom checks” – either in the mail or deposited directly into your brokerage account.

What Are ‘Freedom Checks’?
‘Freedom checks’ are the name we have given to the monthly (or quarterly) distributions that investors receive from Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs). Think of them as “dividend” checks from regular companies, but they are called “distributions” when being paid by an MLP.
How do I collect my ‘Freedom Checks’?
Depending on how your brokerage account or online trading account is set up, you will either receive your distributions (dividends) sent to your home or deposited into your online account just like traditional dividends.
What is “Statute 26-F”?
Statute 26-F, refers to the section of the IRS Revenue Code of 1986 that covers publicly traded partnerships that are treated as a corporation. The specific section of the code that applies to Master Limited Partnerships is under title 26, subtitle F. Therefore, the section of the code that allows MLPs to operate with their beneficial tax structure is what we call “Statute 26-F.”
Why Have I Never Heard of Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) Before?
It’s likely that you have never heard of MLPs before because most brokers or financial advisors simply aren’t aware of them. These are unique, high-yield investments that many of the world’s wealthiest investors — like T. Boone Pickens — rely on for steady, reliable income.
How Can MLPs Pay Out Such High Amounts?
Because of their unique tax structure, MLPs must pay out 90% of their profits as a return of capital, allowing taxes to be deferred until you sell the MLP. This low tax rate allows higher yields from the investment, some as high as 10% to 13%.
Are These Investments Real? Or a Scam?
Is My Money at Risk with MLPs?
Like any investment, there is the potential for you to lose your capital when you invest in MLPs.
