I just read that one way to avoid paying capital gains taxes was to invest in stocks within an IRA. The tax is thus assessed only when the money is taken out of the IRA. I am 64, been retired for 7 years, I am not a financial wizard, (I am an engineer), but have done quite well in the market. I have no debts (a financial advisor told me I was out of my mind. I should morgage my paid off house and go as deep in debt as I can and invest in the market as I can "make a lot of money there") Well I am happy where I am and plan on keeping out of debt. Can I transfer the bulk of my stocks to an IRA for my 54 year old child bride. When my wife and I die, the children would inherit the IRA. Who knows, I might die from an od of viagra tomorrow. Thus they would pay the taxes out of their inheritance. Anyway, what do you think of this idea?
