    • Taxes
      The New Capital Gains Rates
      change: Lower capital gain rates

      When: Effective
      for tax year 1998 onward

      Who benefits:
      Investors and some businesses

      The tax rates on net
      capital gains have been reduced. Before this law change
      in 1997, the maximum tax rate you paid on your
      capital gains was 28%. This was truly a tax break if your
      top tax rate was 31% or higher, but if you fell into
      the 15% or 28% brackets, you received no tax benefit
      from the maximum capital gains tax rate.

      investors can keep more of the profits from the sale of
      their capital assets. If you end up in the 28% or
      higher tax bracket, the maximum tax rate that will apply
      to most of your capital gains is now 20%. If your
      tax bracket is 15%, the maximum tax rate that will
      apply to your capital gains is 10%. Therefore, unlike
      before, taxpayers in all tax brackets will reap the
      benefits of the lower capital gains tax rates.

      1997, Congress enacted a twist to the long-term capital
      gains rates. To get the best tax rates, you had to own
      your capital asset more than 18 months before you sold
      it. That short-lived rule is now gone. With one
      exception, if you own your capital asset more than a year
      before you sell it at a gain, you qualify for the lower
      20% (or 10% for the 15% tax bracket) rate. The
      exception is if you sell a capital asset that's considered
      to be a collectible. Coins and artwork fall into the
      "collectible" category. The tax rate for gains on collectibles
      you've held for more than a year reaches its maximum at
      28%. One aspect of the new capital gains law won't
      affect us for a while. Starting with the year 2001, the
      maximum capital gain rates for assets held more than five
      years will be 18% and 8%, depending on what tax bracket
      you are in. However, the 18% rate won't apply unless
      you actually bought the asset in 2001 or later.

    • is there justice? :-)

    • you should talk to your banker, because if RDWR
      stay's where it is (don't believe it will, with earnings
      upcoming, and 5 new partners now, to add to revenue's), but
      YOU WILL want to sell some of the stocks that are
      losing money, to offset the capital gains-------to sell
      some anyhow, to minimize the tax payout. YOU NEVER
      want to PAY when you can offset the gains.----when the
      time comes, talk to your tax person to decide, but why
      pay-out when you don't have to. You can't write off this
      years losses next year,----so if RDWR goes beyond your
      buy-in price,(next year) you'll have to pay taxes on it
      next year, besides paying this years gains.

    • it seems I might have been undercutting the maximum capital gains tax percentage by a bit. Here's a website that could help.

    • Thanks for making me feel better. I originally
      bought @ $60! I have however, bought twice in the low
      $40s and sold in the mid $50s, just like Itbeme

      I generally am a buy and hold investor, but, I
      couldn't resist, as this company has seen more then a few

      Long term I believe in this company.
      Short term, what the heck, I'll play it and make a few

    • down over time. Day trade 200 or 300 shares and average in the $75/shares with the lower cost ones. You may only get rid of 10-30 shares at a time, but it frees up cash pretty quickly.
