tax consequences should never drive investment decisions, it's
critical that they be considered - especially by higher-income
taxpayers, who may be facing the 39.6% short-term capital
gains rate, the 20% long-term capital gains rate and the 3.8%
net investment income tax (NIIT).

substantially cut tax on any gain.
Here are some other tax-saving
unrealized losses to absorb gains.
if a loved one qualifies for the 0% rate (or the 15% rate if
your rate is 20%).
Many of the strategies that can help you save or defer income
tax on your investments can also help you avoid or defer NIIT
liability. And because the threshold for the NIIT is based on
modified adjusted gross income (MAGI), strategies that reduce
your MAGI — such as making retirement plan contributions — can
also help you avoid or reduce NIIT liability.
These are only a few of the year-end strategies that may help
you reduce taxes on your investments. For more ideas, contact
