Tips & Tools for the Tax-Efficient Investor

If you have money invested in stocks, bonds or funds in a taxable brokerage or advisory account, you probably already know that many of those investments produce taxable income from time to time. You also probably know that when you sell an investment, you often times must pay taxes on realized taxable gains – that is, the difference between what you paid for the investment and what you sold it for.

Taxes can eat away at your long-term returns

What we do know is that taxes can have a negative impact on your overall portfolio performance. In fact, Morningstar estimates that taxes can cost you up to 2%[2] in returns over your expected investing time horizon. That type of tax liability can take a huge bite out of your potential investment performance over time.

Knowing your options is half the battle

Paying special attention to the tax implications of your investments can be beneficial in the long run and knowing your options can help put you on the path to achieving the best possible after-tax returns.

Working with PNC Investments

Neither PNC Investments nor your Financial Advisor provide tax advice. If you are considering a tax-managed strategy or service, you should review your tax situation with your own independent tax professional to fully evaluate how you may benefit.
