Any advice to sheltering a large lump-sum of cash to be received after Jan 1, 2000?


If you speak of sheltering from taxes you may want to consider some sort of municipal bond .


a tax sheltered annuity.....

(I cant believe I suggested that)


Common stocks on a long term buy and hold basis - you at least are in control of the timing of any tax implications on common stocks.

All of the above suggestions need to be weighed and balanced in some sort of financial plan that will meet your overall goals and desires and at the same time match your tolerance for RISK.
