My investment land company did not sell anything, no surprises there, so I took another 4K hit on taxes there. My private investment company did about a 16% gain last year. I probably was too conservative but this is only a paper gain as I made few trades. Taxes on reinvestment of dividends buying more shares. My detective agency had another very good year, 5 in a row. However, insurance costs, government mandated regulations (from a GOP Legislature) across the board are killing small business here in Georgia.
