GTT offers active traders a full trader tax solution
Barron's and CNBC address a key problem for traders
and credit GTT with the best full trader tax solution.
Barron's and CNBC featured Robert A. Green, CPA in several stories highlighting
a "missing tax link" between brokers and their trader clients.
The missing link is that many online brokers and direct-access brokers
don't currently provide sufficient tax information and tax reporting to
their active trader customers. Their trader customers are lost at tax
time and they end up not receiving all the tax benefits they are entitled
to under the new trader tax laws.
has been listening and recently entered alliances with two leading direct-access
brokers to fix this "missing link" problem. GTT entered
alliances with Schwab's CyberTrader
and Terra Nova
Trading to build and power their new Tax Centers for active traders.
These direct-access brokers are also offering GTT TradeLog, our software
program to import and reconcile trading transactions.
June 2, 2001 article on direct-access brokers ranked TerraNovaOnline
2nd out of a dozen direct-access brokers. One of
the positive factors in the Barron's ranking was GTT's new Tax Center
for Terra Nova, "Terra Nova recently rolled out a tax-information
page, which will feature columns by day-trading tax experts."
The GTT full trader tax solution.
