    Obama may propose tax overhaul

    You are saying than pipeline MLP's could be taxed as corporations. Assuming profits of 30% of cash flow their tax would be about 10% of cash flow. The shareholder would receive a $90 distribution compared to a previous $100 distribution. The $90 disribution would be $70 return of capital and $20 qualified dividend income taxed at 15% or $3. His after-tax return would be $87. Previously his $30 ordinary income was taxed at $10 for an after-tax return of $90.
    He has a loss of $3 but is assured capital gains treatment on sales of stock rcapturing return of capital.
    He appears to be in pretty good shape.
