Should you invest your IRA in a startup?

Excerpt:

“If you’re thinking about entering these waters, get ready for lots of homework and, of course, seek expert advice. Then again, “if you’re the kind of person who doesn’t want any trouble, why go there,” says Robert A. Green, a certified public accountant and chief executive of GreenTraderTax.com, which advises traders.”

Testimonials

This was my first year claiming trader tax status and there is no way I could have done it without Adam Manning and his team. Due to their efforts, I am confident that my return is complete, correct and entirely compliant with IRS guidelines. Without their expertise, I would have been at risk for failing an audit due to my or my previous accountants' (wonderful folks but not experts in the trading field) lack of knowledge and understanding. I would also have missed some write-offs and ended up overpaying. I highly recommend these folks for anyone who is serious about trading as a profession!
