Hello everyone,

I am relatively new to investing and am still trying to figure out a couple of things with taxes. In Peter Lynch's books one of his points is you can make a killing buying stocks making 20%-30% on stalwarts and then selling over and over. I was wondering if anyone had articles or ideas relating to the basics of short term capital gains, long term capital gains, how to figure out dividends with and without drips, any ways to write stuff off etc... Thanks for all your guys help.
