Q. If i hold shares in a fund without adding any more cash for over 18 months, then sell it, i will be taxed at the long term rate. Then I realized that during this time, reinvested diividends and cap gains are being reinvested (but I think only put in at the end of the years) SO....then some of my money will be taxed at Short term or intermidiate rates if i sell all at once...am I correct about this?.......thanks for any thoughts.......Debbie
