ABSTRACT
The article talks about buying back stocks. One that has become increasingly important in recent years is the tax treatment of off-market share buybacks, treatment that means buybacks are usually attractive for low-tax paying investors, but of much less appeal for high-income payers. The key tax issue associated with buybacks is the way the price paid for the shares that are bought back consists of a relatively small capital amount.
