Taxes Will Always Affect Your Portfolio
There are many factors you need to consider as part of your long-term investment planning. Your objectives may include income, safety of principal or capital growth. Factors influencing your choice of specific investments may include a need for control, experience in investing, tolerance for risk, and of course, your personal tax situation.
Getting Your Head Around Taxes
All the investment decisions you make will ultimately have tax implications. Outside of a registered account, your holdings are taxed differently on investment earnings, depending on the type of return: interest, dividends or capital gains. To help you maximize your returns, you will want to know how you can make the most of tax provisions.
