Very few tax professionals in the country specialize in serving business traders. We are the leading firm -- read why you should consider us this tax season. Tax savings start at around $8,000 and only go up! We have the best client testimonials in the business.


Do you qualify for trader tax status? Should you elect mark-to-market accounting? Can you benefit from an entity? Our answers usually save our clients thousands of dollars.

Trader Entities

Q3 is an excellent time to form a trading business entity. Arrange deductions for health insurance premiums and retirement plans. Avoid wash sales with IRAs. Gain flexibility on tax treatment elections. Plus, it looks much better to the IRS for claiming trader-tax-status business expenses.


With brokers providing complex Form 1099-Bs for securities for cost-basis reporting with wash sales, many traders want our help. GTT Tracker is excellent for tracking expenses, time and documenting qualification for trader tax status.

Trader Tax Status Determination

If you have a lot riding on “trader tax status,” but you’re a “close call” on qualifying for it.
