Tax Treatment of Partnership for Investors

The Partnership has elected to be treated as a C-Corporation for tax purposes (our investors receive the standard 1099 form and not a K-1 form).

UK Tax Strategy


Distributions we pay to U.S. unitholders will be treated as a dividend for U.S. federal income tax purposes to the extent the distributions come from earnings and profits (“E&P”) and as a non-dividend distribution or a return of capital (“ROC”) to the extent the distributions exceed E&P.

Distributions we pay to a non-U.S. unitholder will not be subject to U.S. federal income tax or withholding tax if the non-U.S. unitholder is not engaged in a U.S. trade or business.

Please note that the determination of whether these distributions constitute a dividend from E&P or a ROC is not made for U.S. federal income tax purposes until the end of the fiscal year. If you are a U.S. unitholder and you received an IRS Form 1099 that does not set forth such amounts, you should contact your broker or tax advisor.

Holders are directed to consult their own tax advisors to determine the appropriate tax treatment with respect to the distributions.

Common units

No distributions were made on our Class A Common units in 2023, which were cancelled on January 6th 2023.  No distributions were made on our Common Units which were issued to previous holders of the Altera Unsecured Notes in 2023.
