Forbes: The New Rules of Money

#4 Taxes Are a Key Investing Strategy

With experts predicting equity returns will average just six percent per year, taxes will make a big difference in what counts most—-your aftertax return. Be strategic. Keep taxable bonds and high-turnover funds producing short-term capital gains in tax-deferred retirement accounts. Hold individual stocks in taxable accounts to take advantage of the low long-term gains rate and tax-loss harvesting. Hedge against higher rates by converting some of your traditional IRA to a Roth IRA.
