I saw the item on the Fidelity website. They have a q&a investment discussion board and that was one of the subjects discussed.

It was explained that any IRA or qualified account that exceeds the $1000 UBTI (unrelated taxable income) rule and hence requires the filing of a 990T tax return will be charged $300 for that filing by Fidelity.

Income from MLPs is UBTI and hence falls under the rule. But in previous discussions this was a controversial subject and some tax advisers dispute the rule. Others say you can deduct legitimate expenses from your UBTI gross number to arrive at the net figure.
