What Are "Master Settlement Payments"?

Master Settlement PaymentsSavvy investors have been taking advantage of a type of investment that we call "Master Settlement Payments," which can result in tax-free payments of more than $2,300 every single month.

But what are "Master Settlement Payments"?

They are the indirect result of legislation against Big Tobacco companies back in November 1998.

The "Big Four of Big Tobacco" were sued for using advertising that misled people and manipulated scientific research for their benefit.

In this landmark settlement, known as the Master Settlement Agreement, tobacco companies agreed to pay huge sums of money to those affected in perpetuity.

Big Tobacco's Punishment: In November 1998, the "Big Four of Big Tobacco" agreed to pay $206 billion to 46 states and U.S. territories in a landmark settlement. You could claim a tax-free portion of this money. Learn more...

The settlement required a minimum payout of $206 billion in the first 25 years to 46 state municipalities and five U.S. territories.

To date, it is estimated that the big tobacco companies have been paying out around $686 million a month. Of course, this money is going to the states – settlement cash is not being paid out directly to individuals. But the good news is, there is a backdoor way for you to cash in on more than $2,300 per month from the money being paid to the states, even if you never touched a cigarette in your life.

To sweeten the deal, these payments are tax-free and are guaranteed and backed by the government.

The best part is you can cash in on these multimillion-dollar, tax-free payouts even if you've never smoked a cigarette...
