I am in the process of becoming Foolish and slowly exiting Mutual Funds in favor of direct investing into stocks.My question is: Can you postpone capital gains taxes on money that is in these mutual funds by receiving stock instead of cash ?I remember several prospecti saying that the mutual funds had the Option to send you stock certificates if selling stocks to raise cash would be disruptive to other fund members.I was just wondering if you could ask for 166 shares of Dell @60 instead of $10,000 and just move your cost basis of say $4000 over to the stock and not have to immediately pay gains on $6000 ?Thanks in Advance-Greg Reynolds / gsr
