It seems like a more efficient solution to this problem, assuming it really is a problem, would be to force the sale of these assets and let the existing mechanisms for taxing capital gains work as they do now.

Are they also going to issue tax credits every year for unrealized capital losses? So dumb.

What is the income cutoff here?
