Subject:  FF and a tax (lc) fool Date:  8/1/1999  12:16 PM

What is the very best way to shelter my FF holdings from the evil empire (IRS). I can designate my Datek account as an IRA, but I know I'll eventually want to contribute more than 2K annually. Given the great returns the FF can provide, I may end up paying 100 or 200K in taxes to rotate after 30 or so years. Is there a way to designate my Datek account as an "untouchable" retirement account since I won't be selling to garner income, but rather to re-invest? Is it all a wash if I reinvest anyway, save for long-term capital gains? Do I understand what I'm asking? Am I just asking the wrong questions?
