JeanDavid originally said...<<No: you should be a teacher. You just demonstrated why users of the UG5 should do it inside an IRA to defer the taxes.>>And then, in the midst of a massive brain lock, TMF Taxes mumbled...<<Maybe yes...maybe no. Think about somebody giving up a MAX capital gains tax rate (now at 20%), only to have this investment in a taxable IRA account on which tax will have to be paid at a HIGHER tax bracket (up to 39.6% currently).>>Jeeze...what an Idiot I am. As we all know, the UG5 method is a short term method. So the comparison to long term holding periods is just too stupid to deal with. And, in general, I would agree with JeanDavid's original statement now that I am somewhat coherent again. By way of an excuse, when I read UG5, my brain registered F4 (which DOES deal with long term gains). It's a pretty weak escuse, but it's the best I got. And thanks for the flurry of e-mail that I received from many of you pointing out my confusion. I'd love to be able to tell you that this will be my last screw up, but......TMF TaxesRoy
