Welcome Traders
Congratulations, you found the best tax sites for traders!

We offer you lots of free information, tax centers, guides, software and a full range of services.
Our goal is integration, ease of use, low costs and maximum tax savings.

Education Center: We are proud to provide the most detailed and informative Education Center for Traders on the Internet.

GTT Self-Help Guides: Thousands of traders purchase our annual GTT Trader Tax Guides to learn every trader tax law inside out and how to take advantage of them in the best tax-wise manner. Our guides show traders exactly how to file their own tax returns; they are packed with trader tax return examples (all different scenarios) and line-by-line guidance. Our Education Center is good, but if you have some big tax refunds on the line, you should step-up to our GTT Self Help Guides. For sure the money you save will pay the cost many times over.

Trade Accounting Software & Accounting Services: Accounting for your trades can be a real headache and many traders are lost when it comes to accurately determining their trading gains and losses either subject to wash sale reporting or mark-to-market accounting. Online and direct-access brokerage firm reports (for capital gains and losses) are not good or reliable enough to include with trader tax returns. Hyper-active traders should use good off-the-shelf software for trade accounting. But even that is still not good enough. We also recommend that our professionals review and reconcile your trade accounting program results. We will tackle many nuances in trader tax, complex tax treatment, override program treatment when appropriate, and tie it all into an excellent trader tax return. Make any misstep along the way and the consequences can be huge!

GTT Trader Client Services: For you "do-it-yourselfers," kudos to you, you probably can do a good enough job on your trader tax returns (and other trader matters) using our GTT Self Help Guides. But for the majority of traders, they are "selling themselves short" by not taking advantage of our tax savings ideas and tax reporting strategies, first hand. We have never had a client that did not save more in taxes from our preparation work then the cost of our fees. So in a sense, Uncle Sam is paying us, not you. You deserve a tax break today, so hire us this tax season to do your tax dirty work.

Full Solution: Our goal is to make your tax life easy. We have crafted a full solution with our alliance partners that bridge you from brokerage firm to trade accounting software to GTT trader tax return. No other firm can do this and if you hire them instead of us, you will find yourself jumping over pitfalls without a bridge.
