    I found a few tax articles state that pension funds to not pay capital gains taxes which makes the suit an odd one. Maybe they are looking out for their member that hold AbbVie in a taxable account. For those that do have AbbVie stock that puts them in a position to be liable for capital gains taxes, it would seem that they are simply paying now instead of later. Paying the tax now resets the basis so they will pay less in capital gains when they sell the stock of the new company. Could work out to be a wash if the tax rates remain the same. Could be a benefit if tax rates on capital gains goes up. No one likes to pay taxes but the tax will be paid eventually unless you pass it on to your heirs. Most of my AbbVie stock is in an IRA and I will be paying at my marginal rate (likely more than 15%) when I sell so the inversion doesn't have any immediate effect on me.
