This is a form of tax exemption that was passed into law in 1987 by Congress. It requires that master limited partnerships, MLPs, be exempted from tax but give up 90% of every dollar earned in its operations back to the investors. Although freedom check might sound like a federal government run program and is supported by federal laws,, it is a non government program. Though Freedom checks closely resemble dividends, they are referred to as distributions by the MLPs. MLPs are firms that deal in energy related businesses Eg, natural gas and oil extractions.
How Freedom Checks Came to Be
Before being passed into law the then president, President Nixon, supported the need for the United States to maintain its independence through the production of its own energy. He, therefore, supported the creation of laws that attracted more investors, American, into the energy sector by giving them a reward for investments. The reward was exempting MLPs and their shareholders from the federal income tax. Such policies have made Americans, over the years, invest heavily in domestic oil and gas production.In most cases, freedom check investments require bigger investments to get the estimated $160 thousand dollars quarterly. Some of the organizations that have invested in checks, Reuters and Motley Fool, have reported large returns on investments.
Small is also not left out, they can buy shares, freedom check shares, and get sizable returns on investments with a 50 dollars to 100 dollars startup. Shares from freedom check can generate up to four times what other government investment programs like social security and 401k can. Another advantage that this program has is that it has no age limit nor has it income limit.For a company to eligible for the MLP tax exemption, it has to be getting 90% revenue from their manufacturing or production, storage, transportation, and processing within the country and agree to give 90 cents of each dollar earned to their shareholders /investors, a very lucrative investment opportunity with the huge amount of money each and every year. Currently, freedom checks are issued by an exclusive group of 568 companies.
