Matt Badiali: Freedom Checks

If you have been following the investment advice from Banyan Hill Publishing Company author Matt Badiali then you are probably heavily invested in Freedom Checks. Freedom Checks were popularized by the former geologist as a way to increase your investment returns while minimizing your overall tax liability.If this is the case then you may have been excited whenever you first heard of the Trump Bonus Checks. These investments may seem fairly similar to the Freedom Checks that were popularized by Matt Badiali at first glance however there are some key differences. The Trump Bonus Checks do act as traditional dividends and are not any form of a special investment.

While it may be true that corporations and companies will begin to pay larger dividends in order to purchase stock back as result of the tax liability being lowered under the Trump administration in comparison to Freedom Checks they are not anything super special.Freedom Checks are different from a traditional dividend which is a form of a investments return that is paid out to investors that hold stock in corporations on a regular basis. In order to receive some of these investment returns, you must invest in a special classification of Corporation in the United States of America. These corporations are known as master limited partnerships.

Several decades ago Congress enacted a special piece of legislation known as Statute 26-F which would incentivize corporations to operate in the oil and natural gas industries of the United States of America. In order to receive these checks you can invest in these corporations and you will receive payments that are similar to dividends but instead of being treated as a traditional income they are treated as a return of capital. This has the added benefit of keeping your overall income tax liability low. Any income that is treated as a return of capital is only subject to the long-term capital gains tax which is significantly lower than the traditional income tax that most dividends are subject to.While Trump Bonus Checks may  be a good investment opportunity they are not any different from a traditional dividend that you may receive from a corporation.
