I have kind of a funny story for you. Yesterday, a service representative came to switch out our postage meter machine in the office. He replaced it with the same model, but now it’s just a little bit fresher and cleaner. As the rep was showing us a faster way to print international postage, he flipped up a little plastic flap to reveal a keyboard. I gasped. After almost two years of working at the office, I still did not know that machine had a keyboard! Our rep laughed and then showed me another trick to unjam the machine should an envelope get stuck. Good thing I enjoy learning new things!

Given just how far the stock market has risen in the past several years, many investors are fortunate enough to have investments that have appreciated in value substantially. That's good news for the value of your investment portfolio, but if you own those investments in a taxable account, then you'll have to pay what could be a substantial amount of tax on the capital gains that those investments have earned since you bought them. Even at preferential long-term capital-gains rates, the prospect of paying as much as 20% of your hard-earned gains to the IRS probably isn't the kind of charity you had in mind.
