If you traded actively in 2019, you should watch this webinar before preparing your 2019 tax returns. Join CPAs Robert A. Green, Darren L. Neuschwander, and Adam W. Manning from Green, Neuschwander & Manning, LLC. There are several new and revised 2019 tax forms based on the implementation of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

  • Learn how traders, eligible for trader tax status (TTS), maximize business, home office, and startup expenses using critical tax-reporting strategies.
  • Don’t solely rely on broker 1099-Bs: There might be opportunities to switch to lower 60/40 capital gains rates in Section 1256, use Section 475 ordinary loss treatment if elected on time, and report wash sale losses differently.
  • Make vital 2020 tax elections on time.
  • Learn common errors on tax returns for TTS traders, which can lead to an IRS or state exam.
  • Learn tips for filing extensions and paying taxes.

Lightspeed customers can learn about common errors and opportunities that professional traders can make on tax returns.

Testimonials

I am a stock and options trader and have been for a number of years. I also have used your Tradelog software for most of that time. I have to tell you, that without Tradelog, I would not have been able to file my Tax Returns. I received a 1099-B from Tradestation on March 13. I had already downloaded and run my Tradelog reports. I am a MTM Trader In Securities. Yet, there were more than $2 million in errors on my Tradestation 1099 report. I have called them every month since then, and each month they tell me that I am one of the clients to receive a corrected 1099-B and that it will be coming "soon." Yet, here it is, August 16 and still no corrected 1099-B. I seriously question whether next year's 1099-B will be accurate either. I used my Tradelog numbers to file my Tax Return, and explained the situation to the IRS in notes. Without Tradelog I would have been lost. Thank you for Tradelog. And, by the way. there should be a huge penalty for Tradestation for not providing me an accurate 1099-B, don't you think?
