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. Not correct on two counts.1. It isn't distributions exceeding $1,000. It is Unrelated Business Taxable Income (UBTI)exceeding $1,000 annually.2. The $1,000 is not per MLP. It is $1,000 for all MLPs in the IRA. I have tended to own only one MLP in my Roth IRA to reduce my chances of triggering UBTI.
