Most of these companies are structured as Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs), which helps limit costs by passing tax obligations along to shareholders.
Since MLPs are required to distribute the vast majority of their earnings to shareholders, these stocks usually offer very high dividend yields.
Master Limited Partnerships have the same liquid trading characteristics as common stock, yet they are very different from common stocks. The most obvious difference is that MLP's are 'pass through' investment vehicles--they pass through the income to you the investor.
The Partnership pays no taxes at the company level--instead passing the income to you (and of course you likely pay taxes on the income). Thus one level of taxation is removed allowing the investor to receive a larger distribution.
