I now need to consider protection from taxes. ... It looks good on paper ... anyone out there have any sights

Don't forget that the goal is not to minimize taxes. The goal is to maximize wealth. Taxes are an important consideration, but between investment choices of:

A. Make $2000, pay $1000 in taxes.
B. Make $1600, pay $700 in taxes.

You should go for the higher taxes. Make sure this is not a "Plan B."
