Fund Fact of the Day: Tax-Loss Harvesting... Here is how to save some money on taxes this year. If you are invested in the stock market chances are you have a lot of appreciated stocks with the market up 16% YTD and over 65% from its lows this year. Let's say you are up $1000 in Tesla stock. If you were to sell it you would owe taxes on your profit. However, let's say you were also down $1000 in your Royal Carribian holdings. You could sell your Royal Carribian stock at a $1k loss to offset your $1k earnings from Tesla and owe $0 in taxes. You could then re-buy shares of Tesla and have a new tax basis and you could buy shares of a company similar to Royal Carribian (Carnival?) however, you can not rebuy Royal Carribian if sold for a loss within 30 days, this is what is known as a wash sale. Hope this helps!
