Capital gains

I can’t believe it. I actually have to pay capital gains taxes to the United States for the first time in my life!

“Capital gains taxes.” Just the sound of it should make me feel rich. But I assume the really rich have some way of getting around it.

This is because I sold a property last year, and also sold some stock, all to pay off debts.

Well, at least my tax person is pretty sharp, and I’m sure she took every possible deduction that there was to be had, and kept the tax down to a reasonable amount.

If I had never bought that house, and instead kept my original Apple stock… I don’t want to go there.
