I know this is an amateur question (I am only familiar with real estate taxation) but have been very curious about this. Right now, I have my personal trading account and currently pay the typical ordinary income tax on profits. I max out my retirement contributions to help with the tax but wondering if anything can be done to optimize how my non retirement accounts are structured. Is it feasible it is to create a fund like vehicle where one could continue to build up the portfolio and get taxed only upon distribution.
Any comments appreciated.
