Capital gains are the profit from a sale of property or an investment
Why It's Important
When you have investments, you are not taxed until you have capital gains. Capital gains are only triggered when you make a sale at a profit. This is the opposite of realized loss. With both situations, a sale is what triggers each tax treatment. Capital gains are a good problem to have because that means you are making money!
There are two types of capital gains, long-term and short-term. Short-term capital gains are taxed at your current tax rate. Short-term means that you held the investment for less than a year (generally a no-no). Long-term capital gains are after you have held your investments for longer than a year. These get preferable tax treatment. For instance, if I was a single tax filer and made $45,000, my short-term capital gains rate would be 22% while my long-term rate would be 15%. See the difference!...
Almost every person on the planet is familiar with banks. Everyone has had an experience, whether good or bad, with it, and due to this, the majority of the population always gravitates towards banks, not knowing that other options exist. Whether you want to or not, you might find yourself in the footsteps of a bank, without any clue of alternatives that could change your life.
Banks are profitable corporations that strive to provide for not only you, but itself too, by bulking up on money that you pay, in the form of interests or fees, and paying its shareholders rather than finding another use of the funds. Although this allows the fluidity of finances and gives the bank the margin to grow or increase its assets, it can also have a shortcoming in the form of less focus on the customer.
You may feel frustrated that the kind of service or packages you require is unavailable in a bank. You may also be frustrated by the high-interest rates or the hefty fees that...

The Uniform Security Act is model legislation for securities industry regulation at the state level. Each state may adopt the legislation in its entirety or it may adapt it (within limits) to suit its needs.
Why It's Important
The USA, as it is commonly called, protects investors from unethical practices. It also ensures that people that choose to give investment advice are properly registered to do so. In order to register with the state, a potential advisor has to take a licensing exam, pay fees, and submit the relevant paperwork.
Does being registered with the state fully protect investors? Absolutely not! Registered advisors are sometimes subject to disciplinary action. It happens all the time! Your best defense is education! There are resources such as Broker Check that allow you to see what disciplinary actions if any, were enacted on your current or potential advisor.
If you suspect an advisor is...
