A reminder: Ronald Reagan raised capital gains taxes

The Tax Reform Act of 1986 actually did two things that required the affluent to pay higher taxes: it raised the effective tax rate on long-term capital gains from 20 to 28 percent, and it eliminated the ability to write passive losses against ordinary income.  This meant that after 1986, Warren Buffett's taxes would have been at least as high as his secretary's.

DAVID LINDAHL says that, Tax Lien or Tax Deed? This query occurs a lot among traders eager in Tax crime real estate investment. What's the distinction between Tax liens and Tax actions and which is better to get in? The response to that query is this, which are you looking to do, earn cash on your money? Or own real estate asset with your cash / investment? If you just want to get the interest amount and charges on your investment then Tax Liens is the best choice.
