Join proprietary trader tax expert Robert A. Green, CPA as he explains:

– Tax treatment for proprietary traders including independent contractors (IC) filing a Schedule C vs. LLC members filing Schedule E. Learn how prop traders maximize business expenses.

– IC prop traders have self-employment income (SEI) needed for employee-benefit plan deductions (health insurance and retirement plans), but LLC members do not.

– IC reinvested earnings are “constructive receipt of income” and some prop trading firms have incorrectly omitted this income from annual tax form 1099-Misc. (Read our recent blog post: Some Proprietary Traders Under-Report Income.)

Our live event is complimentary, and we plan to offer a recording on this page.

Testimonials

After attending a few of the Green webinars, I quickly realized that Bob, Adam and Darren really know all the ins and outs when it comes to the tax handling, preparation and compliance for trading forex. As a full-time trader, their firm guided me in selecting and setting up a business entity for my trading. I also used Green for tax compliance for both my business and personal returns. At first I was hesitant to not have a local CPA, but with the technology we have today that is a non issue. I found Adam and his staff to be highly knowledgeable and he also answered any questions I had in a very timely manner. The tracking templates were easy to use and helped me keep all my expenses organized. I will continue to use Green going forward as I feel that my returns will be fully compliant with the IRS and that they are helping me to utilize the tax code to my benefit. If you are a serious trader I highly recommend their services.
