Investing and Taxes

What about my commissions for executed trades? Are they deductible?

No, commissions and other costs of acquiring or disposing of securities are not deductible, but must be used to figure gain or loss when you dispose of or sell the securities. Please see IRS Publication Topic 703, “Basis of Assets”, for additional information.
