some mlp's have different fiscal years and you might find yourself getting a revised k-1 in september, but since your accountant will handle it.....

and if your accountant will handle it, why your question? minimize accountant costs? if that is it, will that incremental cost be significant relative to investment?

another and.....if your decision on what mlp to buy is based on when the k-1 is issued, maybe you should just buy an MLP ETF.
