What is the tax managed form of a fund worth?

Postby Random Walker » Sun Dec 30, 2012 7:48 pm

Small and value asset classes are considered relatively tax inefficient. Does anyone have a rough number in their head as to what additional return a TM small or TM value fund might yield compared to the non tax managed fund for the taxable investor?

Here's the comparison for Vanguard's tax-managed funds:

With the development of ETFs, small-cap and value index funds can avoid most capital gains. Tax management can reduce dividend yields (TM Capital Appreciation) or have 100% qualified dividends (TM Small-Cap and TM International; none of Vanguard's other small-cap or international funds have 100%), so it still gives a small benefit. (The benefit from 100% qualified dividends might expire.)
