Question: A taxpayer can invest 10 000 in a taxable 10 year

The taxpayer expects to hold the bond and the land for 10 years and expects to pay capital gains taxes of 20 percent when the land is sold. The taxpayer’s marginal tax rate on ordinary income is expected to be 25 percent throughout the 10-year period. Which investment is preferable?
