Recently, the expert in finance and former geologist has been actively championing a new investment entitled, “Freedom Checks.” Each month or quarter, companies that apply for the use of Freedom Checks, usually those that operate in the oil and gas sector, distribute monies that very similar to stock dividends. The companies, called master limited partnerships, consist of 568 exclusive entities, and generally pay out 90 percent of their income to company investors, which are considered freedom checks. These checks, which regularly pay better than traditional 401k and IRA accounts, are not considered to be income, but instead, return of capital, making them exempt from taxes. Buying shares in a master limited partnership are not wholly unlike buying any normal stock, yet, they regularly bring in thousands of dollars in distribution checks, and if you were to sell your investment in the master limited partnership, the sale would only be taxed at the lower capital gains rate, providing additional incentives.
