With the end of the year approaching, it’s time to start thinking about that dreaded word once again. We’re talking about taxes. Already, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are some of the most tax-efficient investment vehicles on the planet. Thanks to their index-hugging natures, most ETFs provide the best bang for your tax buck. This fact makes them perfect for taxable accounts. But there is another way ETFs can help you lower taxes.
