The oil industry has seen some huge improvements ever since supply of foreign oil has been steadily replaced by domestic. And now with the less restrictions coming to fracking one can only expect to see even more economic growth regarding oil and gas. With the tax breaks given to these company’s that produce natural resources including oil and gas have seen huge growth. And a program taking advantage of this is freedom checks. You may have heard about freedom checks on the radio or TV. They are program that allows company’s to take their tax cut and put it into a investment opportunity and therefore further allow investors to tap into the booming oil industry. And of course other natural recourse industries.
Freedom checks take advantage of these tax cuts by providing an alternative option for company’s to put their revenue where other than the governments hands. This takes the form of Maser Limited Partnerships or MLPs for short. MLPs are a unit of a company divided up that allows for an investor to buy that unit and take advantage of the company profitable industry. Investors see returns in the form of dividends that usually are from 6 to 9 percent in return rate.
The reason why freedom checks take hold of the tax cuts given to natural recourse company’s aren’t quite stated. However it could speculated is due to the tax free nature of these company’s and the very regulated and stable market they rely on. Due to having a secure market and stream of supply the returns to the investors wont fluctuate too much. For example you wont see a natural gas corporation suddenly go under. Its just no going to happen due to government regulation and safety nets put in place. Another reason is possible because these industries are like economic catalyst. So for a company to get a cut from tax’s and then go on to become a MLP is huge.
In order for these company’s to take part in the program they need to qualify in a few ways. They need to have 90 percent of income come from dealing with natural resources. This can take place in many forms such as storage, transportation, production and manufacturing. And after that they need to distribute freedom checks to their MLP holders, you the investors.
There was an online article posted about Airbnb recently on Hackronym.com. According the the article, it can be an easy way for home owners to earn money. All they have to do is host travelers for a while in their home. Even though it sounds simple, says the article, there are several problems reported. These temporary guests may cause property damage that is not covered by the host’s homeowner’s insurance. Problems such as this can rack up legal and financial debt that can make the program not worth it, states the article.
Those who still want to consider Airbnb guests have some issues to consider. The article says that hosts can be liable for any injury that guests obtain while renting. There can also be host liability for damage, theft, or other illegal activities. Even damage to the neighbors’ property could be the liability of the Airbnb host, explains the article.
Most insurance companies will not cover short-term renting. So, any incident that that happens would be the responsibility of the host. If a homeowner buys the secondary insurance that is offered by Airbnb or a comparable company, it will only go into effect after any other insurance has paid. That could mean a lot of out-of-pocket expenses, says the article.
After considering these financial risks, those who still want to try the hosting program should speak to a qualified insurance representative. The article mentions Richard Blair of Wealth Solutions. Richard Blair has over 20 years of experience in insurance and wealth management and could create a customized insurance plan for Airbnb hosts. Blair understands the various liability problems that could arise with a temporary renting agreement.

Sam Tabar, a New York based attorney is also a financial strategist. Through his many years of experience in the law and financial fields, he has become an expert in the field of investing, particularly commodities and hedge funds and is always willing to share his experience and expertise with others.
With a Bachelor of Arts degree from Oxford University in 2000 and a law degree from the Columbia School of Law, Mr. Tabar began his career as an Associate in an illustrious law firm in the fall of 2001. After several years with Skadden, Arps, Slater Meagher and Flom, LLP, he moved onto the Sparx Group Co./PMA Investment Advisor and became the Co-Head of business development as well as Managing Director in 2004. In 2010, the Bank of America became Mr. Tabar’s new home and he took on the role of Director and Head of Capital Strategy for the Asia-Pacific region. In 2012, Mr. Tabar made a move once again and became the Director of Adanac LLC, BVI and in 2013 he became a Senior Associate at Shulte Roth and Zabel, LLP.
Mr. Tabar offers words of advice for anyone interested in the commodities market. It is essential investors always perform the necessary due diligence and research each product and company thoroughly. Research should always include the historical performance of the product and company and use that information to speculate how the commodity and company will perform in the short and long term. It is also important to determining problem products and those would be products that do not have a reasonable return history. Not every product will perform positively every time out, but a good product will have a more positive track than negative.
Mr. Taber cautions investors to refrain from investing in poorly managed funds. Poorly managed funds will perform very erratically and it will be more difficult to predict a positive outcome and more often than not they will perform less than satisfactory. Investing is not a get rich quick scheme, but one that should be taken on slowly and built up over time. Be sure to check out Sam’s official website for more information.
If you are thinking about investing in a lucrative opportunity, such as the stock market, you have made a wise decision. Many people all over the world have made a lot of money and become financially independent simply by trading in the stock market, and so can you.
When you let friends or relatives know about your decision to start a business or begin investing, not all of them will believe you can do it. In fact, there will always be some pessimists and naysayers among the people you consider your friends, even family members. They have not done what you’re trying to do and don’t want to see you move up. A few of them may wish you the best but simply cannot envision you achieving something that they themselves have not accomplished.
When confronted by negative people, just remind yourself that you have the power to control your own destiny. You are in control of how much you can make and you cannot let other people dictate what you can and cannot do. Don’t let another person’s opinion or belief affect how you live your life or what choices you make.
For example, even though some of the pessimists may be relatives or acquaintances, find a way to keep them away and not give you advice. Their opinion or advice doesn’t help so tell them to keep away from your endeavors. This is what wealthy people do, and those who are determined to achieve great things in life also develop this habit.
