How often does Wealthfront perform tax-loss harvesting? Just at the end of the year or more often?

Wealthfront implements Daily Tax-Loss Harvesting and literally checks your account for Tax-Loss Harvesting opportunities every single trading day.

This means that we may harvest losses from your account throughout the year, including the common late-December period. We believe this more extensive account monitoring – only possible with a software-based solution like Wealthfront – leads to greater benefits.

For a detailed explanation of this strategy and actual results, take a look at the Wealthfront Tax-Loss Harvesting Whitepaper.
