Robert's Articles

Proprietary traders are significantly different from retail traders and have special tax compliance needs, explains Robert Green of GreenTraderTax.com.
Recent years’ tax acts don’t change trader tax status (TTS), Section 475 MTM accounting, wash-sale losses on securities, or the tax treatment on financial products, including futures (Section 1256 contracts) and cryptocurrencies (intangible property), states Robert Green of GreenTraderTax.com.
Day and swing traders inevitably trigger many wash sale loss adjustments (WS) amounting to tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars. Take a loss on a security, repurchase it within 30 days (after or before), and that creates a WS loss, states Robert Green of GreenTraderTax.com.
Profitable traders are keen on maximizing retirement plan contributions in trading activities and also in their full-time jobs, states Robert Green of GreenTraderTax.com.

Join Robert A. Green, CPA, of GreenTraderTax.com, as he explains the tax advantages of trader tax status (TTS). Learn the golden rules for eligibility for TTS for full-time or part-time traders. You can claim TTS for all or part of 2022 and 2021; the IRS does not require an election. TTS traders deduct business, startup, organization, and home office expenses, whereas investors cannot. TTS traders can elect Section 475 MTM accounting which exempts securities trades from wash sale loss adjustments, navigates around the $3,000 capital loss limitation, and unlocks a qualified business income (QBI) deduction. TTS traders might achieve additional tax benefits using an entity like an LLC taxed as a partnership or S-Corp.

Green, CPA of GreenTraderTax.com, to learn how to deduct trading business expenses, elect Section 475 MTM for tax losses and a 20% QBI deduction and deduct health insurance and retirement plan contributions.
