Recognizing Investment Losses

The rules that regulate the securities industry and investment firms when they are investing other people's money and advising investors are extremely complex and most are written in another "language." An experienced lawyer should consulted if your broker is not answering your questions or if you feel he is not operating with your best interests in mind at all times.

When recognizing investment losses, for example, there are rules about purchasing a security that is substantially identical to one that you wish to take a loss on for tax purposes.

  • Your broker should be knowledgeable about these rules and should not be making decisions for your investments that are going to adversely affect your taxes.
  • You can invest in a company based on its P&L, only to find out that the apparent profit did not really exist and the significant losses were deferred.

In other words, through misrepresentation/omission, you were deceived. The NOP myth is not shattered until you have lost your investment.
