I can't help but feel that taxing shareholders on accrued capital gains at a normal rate instead of when they sell is not the best thing. I think that many Americans would feel that they were being taxed on income that "didn't exist" in their eyes. I personally feel that capital gains, if they are to be taxed on their accrued value, not just when sold, that they be taxed at a preferential rate that reflects that these investments are not being turned into cash today. Holding on to those investments invokes a certain amount of risk that should be reflected in the tax rate. See more
