TFSA Passive Income: Make Over $410/Month Tax Free for the Rest of Your Life

The S&P/TSX Composite Index suffered its worst single-day drop since June on September 13. Fortunately, there was some bounce back, as it was up triple digits in late-morning trading today. Regardless, investors may want to explore passive-income strategies, as volatility continues to squeeze their portfolios. That income is even better in tax-free form.

In this article, I want to explore how you can look to generate over $410 per month in your Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) for the long haul. To do that, we are going to be utilizing all our cumulative contribution room of $81,500. That said, investors should look to maximize diversification in their TFSA, or any portfolio, rather than rely on a handful of stocks to generate growth or income. Investors who take that route are subjecting themselves to considerably more risk in comparison to a properly diversified portfolio. This article is an example of just how much income you can generate with the right investments. Let’s jump in.

This energy stock offers big dividends for your TFSA

Pembina Pipelines (TSX:PPL)(NYSE:PBA) is a Calgary-based company that provides transportation and midstream services for the energy industry. Shares of this energy stock have climbed 24% in 2022 as of late-morning trading on September 14. That has pushed the stock into positive territory in the year-over-year period.

This company released its second-quarter fiscal 2022 results on August 4. It delivered total revenues of $3.09 billion compared to $1.90 billion in the prior year. Meanwhile, adjusted cash flow from operating activities rose to $683 million over $538 million in the second quarter of 2021.

Its shares closed at $46.96 as of close on September 13. In this hypothetical, we can snatch up 550 shares of Pembina Pipelines in our TFSA for a purchase price of $25,828. The energy stock offers a monthly distribution of $0.217 per share, which represents a strong 5.5% yield. This investment will allow us to generate tax-free passive income of $119.35 going forward.
