Online Trading Academy Offers New Tax Filing Solutions for Traders and Investors

Global Trading and Investing Academy Helps Minimize Risks with Custom-Tailored Tax Filing Strategies

Irvine, CA, March 21, 2013 - Online Trading Academy announced today that they began offering traders and investors custom-tailored tax filing strategies to help minimize risk for their 2012 tax returns. Core Tax Strategies from Online Trading Academy and OTA Tax Pros were developed to provide tax return guidance to investors and traders facing new regulations.

On November 30, 2012, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) proposed regulation 1.1411-5 which requires a 3.8 percent surtax on gains from securities traders, futures traders and Forex traders. The IRS also allows day traders to claim up to $3,000 in capital losses. These new regulations have caused many fund investors to question the best way to select a filing status and how to qualify for maximum benefits and write-offs.

“Not having the right tax preparation guidance can be costly, eating into valuable time and money,” said Michael Atias, Director of Tax Services at Online Trading Academy, “However, with the proper tax organization tools and education, filing taxes as investors and traders can be a stress-free and profitable experience.”

OTA Tax Pros offers a workshop that provides the knowledge and tools to help traders and investors understand their tax returns. With core strategies to help facilitate the filing of their tax returns, investors and traders can help to protect their tax liability. In the workshop, individuals learn the advantages and disadvantages of filing as an investor, how to qualify as a trader, and the benefits of qualifying as a trader in securities.

Customized filing methods can be an effective tax strategy to help minimize tax exposure and complement trading plan objectives. Utilizing an online course like Core Tax Strategies or OTA Tax Pros helps both individuals or corporations prepare their returns. The OTA Tax Pros staff helps to develop tax strategies that take advantage of new tax laws and legislation, providing traders and investors an opportunity to keep their profits.
