Trader tax compliance/preparation: Key updates on 2012 tax return filings and 2013 tax planning - two part series
Join CPAs Robert A. Green and Darren Neuschwander, Managing Members of Green NFH, LLC
Mr. Green will interview Mr. Neuschwander in his role as head of tax compliance for our CPA firm.
Description: 2012 income tax returns on extension are due Sept. 15, 2013 for S-Corps and partnerships and Oct. 15, 2013 for individuals. Many small business traders have complex tax affairs so they generally file their tax returns close to these tax deadlines. Time is running out! If you rushed to file earlier in the year, just after Oct. 15th is a good time to consider a “checkup” with us to be sure you received every tax break you were entitled to. Early November is also an excellent time to focus on 2013 year-end tax planning instead of waiting until the year-end holidays.

  • Part I: Most common mistakes for traders and best deductions for traders.
  • Part II - education expenses, cost-basis reporting and Form 8949, AGI deductions, retirement plans, amended returns and more

We’re very happy with how this Webinar turned out
. Before you turn to a local tax preparer or self-prepare and file your 2012 tax returns, we strongly advise watching this Webinar recording.

  • Trader tax return examples: For the first time ever, we show tax return examples from 2013 GTT Guide: 2012 Tax Return Examples for Securities Traders (Individual and Entities). We show how to prepare a 2012 LLC partnership tax return for a trading business and compare it to a 2012 sole proprietorship trader tax return. We point out many areas requiring special attention, common mistakes made by local accountants, tips, pitfalls and more.
  • Form 8949, broker-issued 1099Bs, and wash sales: We explain important updates to our content on wash-sale reporting by brokers and cover recent additions to our March 4 blog Caution, downloading securities Form 1099-Bs into TurboTax often leads to incorrect tax filings.
  • TradeLog accounting: We explain various types of manual adjustments that you should make to TradeLog files, which otherwise automates accounting by downloading brokerage firm debits and credits. We discuss the options traders have at tax time on trade accounting solutions and how to find the best solution for you.
  • Extensions: We go over the best tax-filing strategies at this late date, with the tax extension deadline right around the corner. We explain how to file a valid extension in good faith, file key tax elections on time and avoid problems later on like late-filing and late-payment penalties, which can be very high.

Technical note about recordings
Most recordings are available to PC, Mac and other users in fully converted Windows Media Player format. Occasionally, we experience a conversion glitch, which means the file will only work if you download/install the GoToMeeting codec plug-in beforehand. This will work for PC users only, so in these cases, we also offer an mp3 audio file for Mac users.

Subject: RE: THANKS FOR THE GREAT CONTENT/Robert Green

Hi Robert, Here's some great feedback for you. Thought you'd like to read it :-) Talk soon, Markus

---- Original Message ------
From: Pxxx Byyyy
Marcus,

While I do not day-trade (I prefer swing trading and position trading on stocks), I want to thank you for the great content and webinars that you host. In particular, I thought that Robert Green did an excellent job going through the tax issues that traders encounter including 1256, mark to mark and other provisions. Robert did an excellent job summarizing the key provisions and explaining them in a concise and understandable manner. Unlike other "so called" experts" who hype "trader tax status" and other provisions to lower taxes, Robert realistically conveys both the risks and benefits in a balanced and professional manner. In listening to the seminar, Robert's passions and enthusiasm for the topic was consistent throughout the whole seminar. Lastly, his advocacy for fair and favorable provisions for investors and traders allows him to be well informed about potential legislation/regulation and hopefully to have a positive impact on the process.

I would add that I have a Master's in Taxation from Pace University. I had the benefit of taking classes in the tax treatment of partnerships, corporations and financial instruments. More important, I wrote my thesis on the traders’ tax cases that have come out. In doing my research, I found that Robert Green's books and blog were very informative. I would highly recommend that traders listening to the call to purchase his materials and review the blog. While I cannot personally attest to the quality of Robert's consultations and preparation f tax returns, I believe that Robert has a good understanding of the key issues. Lastly, I would mention it is important to for traders to use a specialist tax accountant who has expertise and experience in this area, and not utilize a "generalist"
