We've got the same problem. I am selling my Dodge&Cox balanced which I bought before they closed. I intend to cut back to the minimum allowed for that fund in case I want to get back in the future. All my fixed income assets (except emergency fund) will then be in my tax-deferred accounts. But those ETFs like SPY, MDY, IWM, EEM, and PID do put out a chunk of dividends each year (no cap gains distributions though). The dividends may thwart my plan to convert tIRA assets to Roth IRAs tax-free in the future.
Perhaps a tax-managed Vanguard fund is in order? I will have to look into that.
