Liquidating a company capital gains
Your stockbroker can execute the sale orders or you can do so using an online brokerage account.
For example, you may be taxed on capital gains or lose the portfolio's future appreciation.
Further the situation was aggravated when the somewhat narrow definition of “related person” was replaced with the extensive definition of “associated person” meaning far more transactions were caught by the rules.
Finally, the over reach of the tax rules relating to capital gains has been recognised, with the “tainting” being removed from almost all transactions.
In addition, if your shares don't trade frequently or the shares were issued by a private company, get advice about liquidating your portfolio from one or more brokers.
Before you liquidate your stock, consider the tax implications of doing so.
