I am not sure that all mpl distributions in a taxable account are tax free...Much of the distribution as I understand reduces the tax basis...If you were to sell you would have to pay gains on the reduced basis....If you hold till death, under current law, I believe the basis is stepped up to current value of the mlp...which avoids the taxes on the reduced tax basis...
