      1. Steve.. did you buy in your taxable or tax deferred account? I’m thinking of picking up a few in my IRA to avoid the K1 processing.

        1. I have NS-PRC in my IRA already. So we think alike avoid the K1 via an IRA. However, I went taxable with this purchase. I don’t want to push this 1,000 UBI limit, so I’ll deal with this in my taxable accoubt unless I flip it (unlikely but possible)
