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.

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.
