my taxes were $500 last year and not much the years before. not a good basis to figure this on. what is AGI?

my local CPA suggested the above method and to pay it by the 15th of January.

sale of MLP less cost = profit
then I added every distribution from day one:

so profit plus distribution = income that is then calculate for tax may be?

if I sell any stocks at this point and start the circle over again and would much rather keep what I have. we refuse to go on margin to pay for anything so it would be a personal loan to pay the irs.

Boy do I miss Phil.
