A WSJ reporter is looking to interview some investors who are concerned about (or don't understand) the changes in taxes on capital gains. If you fit that profile (and most probably do) and would like to be interviewed for the story, then contact Laura promptly via her email address at the end of her note. Here's what she's looking for:
Are you an investor who is worried or confused about the 2013 changes in taxes on capital gains? If so, I’d like to hear from you as soon as possible.
The investment tax landscape has changed for 2013, more than many are aware of. There’s a three-tier tax rate plus three back-door taxes, and investors at all levels will be affected, either directly or indirectly. Deferral is more valuable now, as are planning techniques.
I understand the new landscape. But for an article, I would like to hear from “on-the-ground” investors about how they feel about the changes or how they’re reacting to them, especially as markets are high and people may be contemplating taking gains.
Please respond as soon as possible to Laura.Saunders@wsj.com
