doesn't matter with IRA's. Better in taxable accounts where you can defer income and CG payments.
There can be a problem with IRA's if you own to many MLP shares in the IRA. I do not remember the particulars but it has something to do with the going over $1000 with part of the distribution. Then you have to pay taxes on the overage.

Good point and your point is true. MLPs aren't designed for retirement accounts, MLPs provide tax advantages without having to put your money in tax-deferred accounts.
