Freedom checks started as a way to get american interested in investing in energy companies. More specifically, since relationships with the U.S oil partnerships have strained over the last couple of years, freedom checks work as an incentive to invest in American made energy. There are approximately 550 companies that offer freedom checks to their investors. These checks come annually or quarterly and are a tax free dividend of sorts. Companies that are publicly traded are known to pay out dividends to anyone who owns stocks as a special thank you for having invested their company’s future. As the value of the company in the market rises, so do the dividends and these checks are paid out in accordance to how much money you hold in shares. Freedom checks are similar to these dividends, but with a couple of key differences.
Matt Badiali, a senior analyst in Banyan Hill, first introduced freedom checks in an ad that at first look might seem too good to be true. But Badiali’s expertise in economics and his background as a geology professor make his the perfect analyst to educate people on the energy industry. He has researched both the mining and oil industries and combined the research with his knowledge of the market to come up with an investment opportunity. As badiali explains, in order to receive of one of these checks, you must first invest in an energy company that produces energy in the United States. These energy companies are MLPs, or “master limited partnerships” which means they trade as a publicly traded company, but also maintain tax free benefits as most partnerships do. You can own shares of these MLPs for as little as $10, but your check will reflect the amount you have invested.
What makes these checks so interesting is that they enjoy that tax free benefit, which means that the companies are much more profitable than a usual publicly traded company who has to pay taxes on their eventual gains. This tax code allows investors to get a much higher return on top of a special subsidy provided by the government.
