Stock gains/loss/dividends are not reported to the IRS each year in an IRA.
If you hold a MLP (master Limited Partnership) stock in an IRA do you have the more complicated tax caluculations that you would have in a regular account. Or are they not reported at all like any other stock.

Any property can be held in a self-directed IRA -- as long as the investor does not receive any present benefit from the property (e.g., you can't live in a home that you place in an IRA -- it must be pure investment property). The IRA would simply be the recipient of the K-1 for any profit or loss.

Hope this helps.

If the MLP generates unrelated business taxable income (UBTI) in excess of $1,000 then the reporting becomes more complicated. If the UBTI exceeds $1,000 then taxes have to be paid from the IRA on the amount in excess of $1,000. The UBTI must be reported on Form 990-T and taxes paid with this form. If the MLP does not generate UBTI or the amount of UBTI is less than $1,000 then no taxes have to paid nor does form 990-T have to be filed. The MLP should be able to advise you whether UBTI is generated and a general idea of the amount that was generated in past years.
