There are many ways to earn money, but no matter how you get your income the IRS wants its piece of the pie. That includes any gains you make from your investments when you sell them. Although everyone does have to pay tax on their gains, you shouldn’t give the IRS any more than what you’re legally obligated to pay
With that in mind there are some strategies you can implement to be a tax-conscious investor. Contributing to a tax-differed retirement plan is a great way to save money. Although you will eventually have to pay tax on the income, you can accumulate a significant amount.
Another option is to consider tax-exempts. These are not for everyone, but if done right these investments can in some cases provide an investor with more gains than the after-tax return from a taxable investment would.
Mutual funds are another type of investment that can pay big dividends, but they must pay out their gains every year. That means unless you have losses from other stocks to offset those gains, you will need to pay taxes on them.
