Hello All,

Got word up on the Hill about a tax on the stock market. Did a little digging and found this recently introduced bill, which has a very large chance of passing the House, and a moderate chance in the Senate.

Sourced the bill for all:

https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-con ... 7D&r=1&s=2

Here is an excerpt of the text for tax benefits:

"(A) in the case of a transaction which occurs on, or is subject to the rules of, a qualified board or exchange located in the United States, such qualified board or exchange, and (B) in the case of a purchase not described in subparagraph (A) which is executed by a broker (as defined in section 6045(c)(1)) which is a United States person, such broker."

A tax is defined as,
"term ‘derivative’ means any contract (including any option, forward contract, futures contract, short position, swap, or similar contract) the value of which, or any payment or other transfer with respect to which, is (directly or indirectly) determined by reference to one or more of the following:
Any share of stock in a corporation
Any rate, price, amount, index, formula, or algorithm.

If you sell your shares, expect a tax. If this passes, this would apply to all 401K's including our beloved TSP. Government wants to raise money off 401k's now.

Bill sponsored by Rep. DeFazio, Peter A. Democratic, 4th District of Oregon
