Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs)
Master Limited Partnerships, commonly known as MLPs, are limited partnerships that trade on securities markets like normal stocks. MLPs are not subject to income tax, and shareholders in MLPs are actually "limited partners" in company.
Their special tax designation allows MLPs to pass the tax burden onto their shareholders, but they are required to pay the vast majority of their earnings out to their partners, similar to REITs.
