Buffett to ‘Hypocrisy’ Critics: Stock Purchase Not Timed to Avoid Taxes (CNBC)
Warren Buffett has responded to critics who said the timing of Berkshire Hathaway’s purchase of $1.2 billion of its own stock was designed to save the seller a lot of money in taxes. That’s based on the assumption the seller expects the tax rate on capital gains will be substantially higher next year after the “fiscal cliff” is resolved, so he or she wanted to complete the sale before the end of this year.
