Do you like paying taxes and commissions? If you realize a capital gain by selling after holding a stock for more than a year your tax rate is only 15%.Yeah I sold my stock when it started going down after the stock split. Just bought it all back and more for $100 less. Hoping it stablizes around this price, I'm just praying for a huge battery day reveil that will make me more money.
I can't make sense of your point now. Capital gains is the part that wasn't taxed, so now it's income, so shouldn't it be taxed like normal income instead of special?As income it has been taxed. I should have added "Why double tax capital gains as income?"
