Thanks for confirming, sophie. Good deal.sophie wrote:I can confirm that the wash sale rules don't apply. I researched IRS rules, then tax loss harvested gold Eagles through APMEX in 2013. Per the guy I talked to on the phone, they were doing a ton of those transactions at the time. I had to mail them coins and get them mailed right back though.
My personal long run expectation for gold is effectively the fed’s inflation target, so I’m not concerned holding most of the allocation in my SEP IRA via Fidelity, but the ability to tax loss harvest that volatile stinker occasionally sure is enticing and may merit some shuffling eventually.
