TAXES on entire holdings as per the RE-DOMICILE to Ireland.....whether it is short-term or long term gain.
ALSO....anyone with a short or long term LOSS will NOT be able to report the loss on irs taxes.OUCH!!!!!
For the TAX reason only, I'm voting AGAINST the merger (have been through many splits and acquisitions
since 1982 with PFE, so the tax thing is a nightmare!! And if you sell TODAY, you still have to pay taxes on
gain or loss this year. Either way, were STUCK....we have to hope the merger doesn't go through!! SHAME!
Betcha anything that the 1st qtr regyular (historic) dividend just paid and the remaining div's paid to us for
the rest of the year with the NEW status of WIN (REIT) will create submissions of one (or more) CORRECTED 1099's .....AFTER the tax deadline(4-15) creating MANY of us to HAVE to do AMMENDED
tax returns for 2015 due to return-of-capital and REIT issues. Creats LOTS of tax hasstle/nightmare on our
part causing us to pay MORE tyax in year and LATER having to use corrected info to try to get it back from IRS.
NIGHTMARE........on the horizon....."think Taxes".....always 24/7 REALITY!!@!
