    UBTI-Unrelated Business Tax Income

    "to determine how much tax I would have had to pay on the shares"

    FWIW, UBTI is:

    o Highly variable

    o Unpredictable

    o Unique to an investment's specifics

    o In general, E&Ps will have high/higher positive UBTI than other sectors

    o Historically BBEP has had very high positive UBTI

    IMO, you are contemplating purchasing one of the worst MLPs (from a UBTI perspective) among the worst investment type (MLP) for your IRA.

    The above does not specifically answer your question, but even if someone gives you THEIR 2010 UBTI number ... you could not, with any degree of certainty, determine your tax.

    Hope this may help in some small way.
