K-1 TAX PACKAGE INFORMATION
ETPETE

In an effort to help the environment, ETP is offering its unitholders the option to sign up for electronic delivery of their ETP K-1’s. The paperless K-1 election can be made online at: www.taxpackagesupport.com/etp.

You may access your 2013 ETP K-1 on Friday, March 7th, 2014 online at www.taxpackagesupport.com/etp.

Paper copies of the 2013 ETP K-1’s are estimated to be mailed during the week of March 10th, 2014. If you elect electronic delivery of your ETP K-1, you will cease to receive a copy in the mail. Instead, an email notification will be sent to you when your ETP K-1 is available online.

Please note these important events:

  • On October 5, 2012, ETP completed its merger with Sunoco, Inc. (SUN). If you received ETP units as a result of this transaction, please refer to the Sunoco Form 8937 and the SUN supplemental information at the link below to obtain more information on the merger and the effect on the tax basis of the ETP units you received from the merger. As part of the transaction, ETP acquired the Incentive Distribution Rights (IDRs), GP interest, and an approximately 32% limited partner ownership interest in Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. (SXL), a publicly traded partnership. As a result, ETP unitholders will receive as a part of their K-1 Tax Package packages a Supplemental K-1 Information Statement that separately states the activity flowing from SXL to ETP.
  • On January 12, 2012, ETP contributed its propane business to Amerigas Partners, L.P. (APU), a publicly traded partnership, in exchange for an approximately 34 percent limited partner ownership interest in APU. As a result, ETP unitholders will receive as part of their tax packages a Supplemental K-1 Information Statement that separately states the activity flowing from APU to ETP.

  • In March 2005, ETP completed a two-for-one unit split. The Partnership distributed one additional Partnership unit for each Partnership unit held as of February 28, 2005. These additional units distributed will be shown on your 2005 K-1.
  • Prior to March 2004, the Partnership traded under the name Heritage Propane Partners, L.P. and was listed on the NYSE under the ticker symbol HPP. Consequently, K-1's provided prior to 2004 would have been issued under the name of Heritage Propane Partners, L.P.

Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. (ETP)is a publicly traded master limited partnership. Unitholders are limited partners in the Partnership and receive cash distributions. A partnership generally is not subject to federal or state income tax. However, the annual income, gains, losses, deductions, and credits of the Partnership flow through to the Unitholders, who are required to report their allocated share of these amounts on their individual tax returns as though the Unitholder had received these items directly.
