1.What is NuStar GP Holdings, LLC’s trading symbol and on which exchange is it listed?
 NuStar GP Holdings, LLC is a publicly traded limited liability company that trades on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the symbol “NSH.”

2.What is a publicly traded limited liability company?
 Publicly traded limited liability companies (LLCs) are limited liability companies that elect to be treated as a partnership for federal income tax purposes, and are traded on public stock exchanges. An ownership interest is called a “unit,” and owners are known as “unitholders.”

3.Who invests in LLCs?
 In general, LLCs pay available cash to unitholders through quarterly distributions. In addition, LLCs are tax-advantaged investments, as unitholders benefit from the fact that LLCs are not typically subject to the entity level federal income taxes of a corporation. Unitholders pay tax on their proportionate share of the LLCs income, which may be reduced by their share of tax deductions.

4.What are the tax implications of ownership?
 

While LLCs, that elect to be treated as a partnership for federal income tax purposes, do not pay any federal income tax, each unitholder is required to report their share of LLC income, gains, losses, deductions and credits on their income tax return. Each year, an LLC provides each unitholder with this information on Schedule K-1 for the previous fiscal year. The K-1 is typically available online in early March and mailed shortly thereafter. A press release is issued notifying the investor base of their K-1 availability.
