In general I do not put higher yielding investments in a taxable account.Preferred shares are generally higher yielding and to my knowledge do not pay qualified dividends. In fact, I would not hold any investment in my taxable account that did not pay qualified dividends.MLPs are good for taxable account since most of the income is return of capital and not taxed in the year you receive it. ROC does increase your potential capital gain but long term capital gains get good tax treatment.Stats
