How do you estimate the benefit of Daily Tax-Loss Harvesting for my account?

The realized value of tax-loss harvesting varies with multiple dimensions, including marginal tax rates, investment horizon, frequency of additional deposits and whether the portfolio undergoes is liquidated at the end of the investment horizon.
