Rumicro you are asking the wrong question. Do not let taxes determine your investment decisions. There is indeed a single dollar of income which will push your marginal tax rate from say 28% to 36%. Fine. That single dollar will result in 36 cents of tax. The proceeding dollar of income 28 cents of tax. Do you really want eight cents of tax to decide whether you sell an over valued stock or not?

Worded another way, while nobody wants to pay taxes, nobody has gone bankrupt because they had to pay taxes.
