Viral videos about investment opportunities that promise incredible levels of returns in a record-setting amount of times seem to be more and more common in the digital age. You may be keen to lump in Matt Badiali’s recent viral video on Freedom Checks with all of the rest of these videos. However, if you take a few minutes in order to look into the details of these so-called Freedom Checks, you’ll be quick to realize that they represent a real and significant investment opportunity. Visit to know more about Freedom Checks.

First off, what exactly are these Freedom Checks? Well, Freedom Checks are simply a term that Matt Badiali has popularized in reference to the periodic payments that you receive upon investment in a corporation which is known as a master limited partnership. Currently, there are over 450 corporations within the United States of America that qualify to operate as a master limited partnership. Now you may be asking what exactly a master limited partnership is? A master limited partnership is a unique classification for corporations that allow them to operate tax-free according to a piece of legislation known as Statute 26-F. Statute 26-F was enacted by Congress in the 1980s in an effort to help incentivize corporations to further develop the oil and natural gas industries of the United States of America. This was done in order to help spur the energy independence of our nation.


Not any corporation can be considered a master limited partnership as Statute 26-F specifies a few specific requirements. A master limited partnership is a corporation which generates 90% of its revenues through the production, processing, storage, and transportation of either oil or natural gas domestically inside of the United States of America or one of its territories. A master limited partnership is also required to periodically pay out a portion of its revenues to its investors. This periodic payment is very similar to a much more well-known investment vehicle known as dividends. There are a few differences however to the payments that you received from these Freedom Checks in comparison to the much more conventional dividends payments investors receive. Perhaps the most important and most relevant to your average investor is that the income that you generate from Freedom Checks is treated as a return of capital and as such is only subject to the much lower capital gains rate of tax instead of the personal income tax which dividends are subject to.
