We'll highlight some tax-mitigation strategies for clients who have concentrated stock or significantly appreciated assets. Plus we'll dive deeper into a couple of popular strategies that you can use for low-cost basis stock, such as active tax-loss harvesting and Charitable Remainder Trusts (CRTs).
