What Are Your Tax Questions About Buying and Selling Stocks?

December 20, 2008

Investing in the stock market has been a roller coaster ride for most people this year.  With all the buying and selling of stocks and mutual funds triggered by the crazy markets, I’ve been hearing a lot of general questions about how the market will affect people’s taxes for the year.

It was one of the common questions I saw when we did our stock investing survey (as an update we’re still working on the stock trading information).

I’m working with a CPA to put together some information that explains the tax implications of selling your investments.  If you have any topics about taxes and investing that you’d like addressed, ask them via the contact form.  We can’t directly answer any specific questions but if you let me know what you’re struggling with maybe we can address the topic in the guide.
