Weekly Link Round-up for October 8, 2010

This week on @blueleaf we posted a good few articles on taxes, which are a concern for investors overall (see “Managing Taxes In Taxable Accounts,”) this year in particular (see “How Much More Will 2011 Taxes Cost You,”) and perhaps even more so at Christmas time (see “How does Gift Tax Work?”)

Knowing how taxes work and learning how best to minimize them when growing wealth is an essential skill. Hope you enjoy the rest of our weekly link round-up below and have a great Columbus Day weekend!
