Why Every Securities Trader & Investor Needs TradeLog
There is no "magic bullet" when it comes to filing your taxes from trading. Reporting gains and losses on IRS Schedule D is a complex process, and therefore, requires a robust tax accounting solution.
Broker 1099-B reports are often useless for tax reporting since the IRS has different rules for taxpayers than they do for brokerages. No, you did not read that wrong! Let me say that again: The IRS has different reporting rules for taxpayers than they do for brokerage 1099s. And in many cases (maybe as high as 90%) your brokerage 1099-B will not match with what you, the taxpayer, are required to report on Schedule D Form 8949.
Please read our IRS Form 1099-B Tax Topic for more details.
The result is that many taxpayers over pay their taxes from trading, or under pay and face penalties, all because they relied solely on their broker provided 1099-B when completing Schedule D Form 8949.
Popular Tax Programs Were Not Designed for the Needs of Active Traders
You might also be surprised to learn that popular tax programs like TurboTax® and H&R Block at Home® use the same innacurate profit and loss information when completing Schedule D Form 8949. In addition, most of these programs are not equipped to handle more than a handful of trades.
ACTIVE TRADERS AND INVESTORS SHOULD THEREFORE, NOT USE POPULAR TAX SOFTWARE WITHOUT ADDITIONAL TAX REPORTING TOOLS LIKE TRADELOG.
