Specifically... the potential for owing (and far more importantly, having to file a return for) state income tax in every state where an MLP has assets. How do I look at an MLP and a.) understand how much income will potentially be applicable to each state and b.) anybody aware of a one-stop-shop that will help me understand on a state-by-state basis what would trigger the requirement to file a return, or do I have to go plow through state.gov websites one at a time? I wouldn't quite call it a one-stop shop, but the link below is a starting point.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_income_taxSo the map identifies seven states that have no income tax and two that only tax dividend andinterest income. I said "starting point" because some states have a minimum income thresholdto file. If you don't reach the minimum income in that state. it too can be crossed off one'slist. I guess, if one started buying major stakes in MLPs, they could create a spreadsheetwith states by row, "taxable income definition" in columns
