It was during the research for one of these projects in the oil and gas markets that Matt Badiali first learned of a unique classification of organization which is known as a master limited partnership. A master limited partnership is a special classification of organizations that operate in the oil and natural gas industry that allows them to have zero tax liability. A master limited partnership was first created as a classification in the 1980s whenever Congress passed a piece of legislation known as Statute 26-F. According to Statute 26-F if a corporation is able to derive 90% of its income from the processing, distribution, production, and storage of oil and natural gas then he can potentially qualify to operate as a master limited partnership and minimize their tax liability.

However, the corporation must also pay out a portion of its revenues to shareholders on either a monthly or quarterly basis. This periodic payment from these corporations is incredibly similar to the payments individuals receive in the conventional stock markets which are known as dividends.
These periodic payments were first popularized by Matt Badiali in his recent viral video about Freedom Checks. Freedom Checks are unique in the investment world as any income derived from these investments is treated as a return of capital. As a result of being treated as a return of capital, individuals are only subject to the capital gains rate of tax to significantly lower than the personal income tax rate that you would need to pay on dividends traditionally.
