Tax-Efficient Investments And Trading Strategies 

It’s crucial to know how an investment is going to be taxed because ideally you’d want more tax-efficient investments in a taxable account.

Conversely, you may want to hold investments that can have a greater tax impact in tax-deferred and tax-exempt accounts, where investments can grow tax free.
