What and How to Use Tax Gain Harvesting

Tis the season of tax talk. You’re starting to see more and more news and social media posts to begin preparing for tax season. Me included. I recently saw a post on tax gain harvesting and wanted to learn more about what that is and who should be harvesting.

He also has a personal finance YouTube channel and published Solo 401(k): The Solopreneur’s Retirement Account, a book about his favorite retirement account.
