How do taxes work on investments in mutual funds?
I am a novice at investing. American citizen working overseas and building a portfolio finally. I've established my emergency savings and am heading into taxable investments. Unfortunately, I am unable to contribute to my Roth IRA or contribute to a traditional IRA while claiming FEIE (Foreign Earned Income Exemption) with the IRS. I'm looking into investing in Vanguard's VWINX fund. How would US taxes work on these investments?
