ETF Tax Management: 1.57% Tax Alpha Generated per Year for Medium Income Investor

 Tax Management Generates 1.57%/ Year in Tax Savings for 10-Sector ETF Portfolio

Cambridge, MA — July 11, 2014 — Smartleaf researchers ran a 5-year backtest, from 2008 to 2013, of a 10-sector ETF portfolio, with and without tax management. The tax-managed account reduced taxes by more than 1.57% / year for the investor with 35% short-term and 15% long-term capital gains rates, which are representative of the combined federal and state marginal tax rates for married couples with more than $75,000/year in income.
