I have a question about how investments managed by an LLC are taxed. For example, say I invest my own money and buy a stock and I sell it for a positive return. If it is sold in less than a year of holding, I will have to pay a higher amount of taxes than if it were sold after one year of holding.
However if I give an investment company my money to manage, and they buy and sell a lot within one year, but the company holds the money for more than a year, which rate would I pay? If I pay the lower tax rate, could I not just start a company like an LLC to manage money and park my money there to invest?
Let me give an example: Imagine I put my money into the LLC and the owners of the that company took no profit and the owners used my money to buy one stock. Imagine that eight months later, the stock has appreciated in value by 10% and was sold, then bought again, appreciated 10% more over another eight months and sold. If I take my money out at this point, how is this taxed?
