Tax rules require tax-advantaged accounts like IRAs to pay income tax on what is called "unrelated business income" (UBI).

Your IRA and not you is responsible for paying any UBIT. The custodian of your IRA will complete and file a tax return in the name of your IRA account. The custodian will charge a fee for this service and any taxes due will come out of the IRA value. If you see that your UBI on the partnership investments in your IRA is greater than the $1,000 exemption, contact the custodian to find out exactly how the UBIT will be handled.
