Equipment Leasing Limited Partnership

A limited partnership in which the limited partners contribute funds that are used to buy expensive equipment, which is then leased to businesses. For example, an equipment leasing limited partnership may purchase a set of tractors and lease them to agricultural corporations. The partnership receives lease payments for the equipment, which are then distributed among the partners. An advantage to an equipment leasing limited partnership is the fact that much of the income from the lease payments is not subject to taxation because of deductions for interest and depreciation.
