Taxation Index


Tax-season stock picks for the savvy taxpayer.


Friends, countrymen, countrywomen and fellow taxpayers, it's that time of year again, the time when each of us must dig deep into our pockets to pay unto Caesar that which is Caesar's due: Taxes. But why settle for being merely the victim of taxation when you can also be an investor in its enterprise? Below, Minyanville presents the Minyanville Taxation Index (TAX), suitable for every investor who seeks a little extra return on that which is non-returnable.

  • Jackson Hewitt Tax Service (JTX). The company's an obvious choice for the busy taxpayer who wants to leave things in the hands of professionals.

  • Intuit (INTU). Developer of software, including TurboTax, the go-to tax program for the do-it-yourselfer (and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner).

  • Texas Instruments (TXN) makes the calculator of choice for the old-fashioned back-of-the-envelope tax preparer.

  • Fannie Mae (FNM). Because you know that's where that tax check is going: Straight from the IRS to the GSEs.

  • Freddie Mac (FRE). See above.

  • Iron Mountain (IRM). Provider of document management services, including paper shredding for the citizen living off the grid.

  • Corrections Corporation of America (CXW). Delighted to bring our maverick off-the-grid citizen back into line.

  • Service Corporation International (SCI). Undertakers to the world. Why not bank on the only thing more certain than taxes?
