If the company pays dividends, you will owe taxes on those at ordinary income rates. But you will owe no taxes on capital appreciation until you sell the shares. --Bob




Thanks Bob, I was almost sure of this, but brother-inlaw bet I was wrong. If you reinvest the dividends then there is no tax either( right )??
