Abstract: 

Over the years there have been many changes to the rules governing individual investor taxation. As an example we examine the minimum holding period necessary to achieve long-term gain status and recall the times when there was no tax benefit afforded to long-term gains at all. History suggests there is no certainty.

Keywords: ng period; long-term capital gains
