    nervous about ETP

    I will be the tough one now! This has been discussed over and over!

    In an IRA if the UBTI is over $1000 you pay taxes on income within the IRA. There is no way to accurately predict the amount of UBTI.

    A ROTH is a great place since you keep the tax benefits as long as you do not run afoul of or do not care about the possible UBTI problem.

    A regular IRA is a crazy place in my opinion since much of the distributions are already tax deferred and when you cash out the portion that would have been capital gains is ordinary income.

    What will the tax situation be for ETE. We will all find out in late February when the K-1s are issued. That should give us a clue as to what the UBTI and tax implications will be going forward.

    Until then it is anybodys guess.
