"If these will raise your taxes by $20,000, you are doing pretty well. I wish it would raise my taxes that much to do what what you describe!"

actually, not all that great....I got a $4500 year pension, and got $51,000 in dividends and cap gains distribution last year.....plus about $15K in regular income (interest)....

My taxes on $51K in dividends was at 15%.

If it is 28%, my tax bill basically doubles.
