My suggestion:

Although the common wisdom is to avoid MLPs in IRA accounts, provided dividends (distributions) from any one individual MLP doesn't exceed $1,000 in any given calendar (tax) year, then there's no need, or obligation to file, or pay taxes.

This, of course, would be irrelevant to those who think a few thousand dollars worth of tax-free distributions are a pittance and not worth bothering with.
