11:02 – If you take $100K and repay $33.33K per year back into retirement accounts over next three years – does that mean NO taxes paid?
12:43 – Are there any tax repercussions for receiving a $1200 per person CARES Act stimulus payment?
20:30 – Curious about inheritance taxes (“death taxes”)
28:51 – If I believe taxes will be on the rise (govt debt, politics, etc), should I focus more on accelerating Roth Conversions or Long Term Capital Gains harvesting in the near term? Basically I’m curious if LTCGs or Ordinary Income rates have historically been more sensitive during rising tax periods.
48:16 – Historically, if tax law changes mid-year, is the date the change becomes effective typically delayed until the following year allowing investors to make the appropriate estimated taxes? Basically, would a 2021 tax change likely not be effective until 2022 allowing for additional Roth Conversions and LTCG harvesting in 2021 ahead of rising tax rates?

51:35 – For tax-loss harvesting, Joe said there could be a shadow purchase. Does that mean the $10 stock is sold at $5, tax harvested, and then the same amount of the same stock is now purchased at $5?
