This product offers exposure to an index which tracks the infrastructure component of the natural gas industry. MLPs have attracted significant interest for two primary reasons: (1) required quarterly distributions provide a steady stream of current income, and (2) because they are partnerships, MLPs avoid corporate income taxes at both the federal and state level?the tax liability is passed through to the individual partners. By generating at least 90% of income from natural resource-based activities such as transportation and storage, an entity can qualify as an MLP and not be taxed as a corporation. So the IRS treats shareholders of an MLP as partners, making the MLP itself a pass-through entity. That means that taxes are avoided at the corporate level, and investors avoid the double taxation of income. MLPG is a different kind of MLP ETP in that it offers exposure exclusively to natural gas, giving investors a hyper-targeted ticker to this particular asset class.
