If you like Master Limited Partnerships and have substantial distributions you should opt for putting them in taxable accounts.  If they are in an IRA and you receive more than $1000 in distributions you will incur "unrelated business income tax" on that IRA. 

If you are sure to be under the $1,000 limit it really doesn't matter.
