Tax-loss harvesting aims to realize losses on individual stocks in conjunction with an investment objective such as index tracking. In this talk, we give a historical appraisal of the value of tax-loss harvesting to taxable investors with realized gains in their portfolios. Our study provides insight into the lifecycle of a tax-loss harvesting strategy, which has its youth, midlife, and golden years.
