• How to execute year-end strategies that are often overlooked.
• Learn how to save thousands with trader tax status and discover key trader tax strategies and tax elections. Investors have important elections to make, too.
• Learn how to qualify for and claim trader tax status for 2014 even after year-end.
• Preparing a trader tax return for 2014 with maximum tax benefits.
• There are key tax treatment differences between securities, Section 1256 contracts (futures), all types of options, ETFs, forex, precious metals and more.
• Entities are a way to avoid the red flags associated with Schedule Cs for sole proprietor business traders, and they unlock additional tax breaks including high-deductible retirement plans and health-insurance premiums. Entities help traders avoid wash-sale loss deferral problems. They are more flexible for changing tax-treatment elections. Learn about the best types of entities and retirement plans for traders.
• Accounting software and a smartphone app GTT Tracker is excellent for tracking expenses and time and documenting qualification for trader tax status.

 

Testimonials

Re: Won tax case in Kentucky. Whew! When I learned the good news this afternoon, I can’t begin to tell you what a relief I experienced to be liberated from the year-long tax nightmare involving Ryyyy LLC! As all of us sadly know, simple justice is often not simple at all but can be financially and emotionally draining. The fact that it has prevailed this time is largely thanks to the support of each of you. Please know that your efforts on my behalf will ever be remembered with gratitude. I hope that in the future I can thank each of you in person.
