Alex McKoyThanks for the thorough evaluation with some numbers to support it. You offered a lot of info which I appreciate. I think the interest over the next 30 years compared to the tax liability for this one year makes it clear. I have decided to sell off shares each month to pay off the mortgage by year's end.

Nathan_GregoryHi @Mohammad , great question! You'll definitely want to check out the what @Landon Martin suggested, going to a .gov website for more specific information and then deciding what type of info you're looking for, (Like how to file taxes for a business, person, or an invetment property). These types of sites will give you detailed, accurate, and up-to-date information on what's going on with both federal and state taxes, depending on what you search. You'll also to check out IRS specific... [ more ]
Landon MartinUsually you can find tax information on the website for your city, county, state, etc. by searching for it online and then looking for a website for that location. When searching on the state or federal level you could also look for websites that have a ".gov" address. They will have the most accurate information because they are actually run by the state or federal government.
