No. You will never pay taxes on unrealized gains in your portfolio. Any short-term or long-term gains and/or losses are the result of a transaction, i.e.-you selling.TMF has a very nice little book that answers all sorts of tax questions related to investing. I believe it was written by a gentleman who often answers questions on this board. I would suggest you purchase a copy. Not because your question was silly, but because if you want to get involved in investing, this is one aspect you should have a familiarity with.
