I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this question. I'd like to know if there is a way to minimize taxes on profits if I sell stock in a standard taxable account? The only reason I want to sell it is to put the funds in my ROTH. The stocks have done really well but they have become ripe and I can put the money to better use. I'd like to work my non-taxed account but I don't know the best way to get it from one to the other without being taxed on the profits. Is this possible?
