question
Q: I have a margin loan that I've let the interest owed on accumulate. The interest accrued offsets my tax. I'm now nearing retirement (within 2 years) and wondering if i should start paying off the interest now and close it by retirement stage. The loan was used to purchase shares and i'd like to keep the shares if possible. Should i pay it off in the next 2 years or wait until post retirement?
