Investment and Taxes

The IRS has set up specific rules that need to be followed when it comes to investments of any kind. It is necessary for the taxpayer to keep track of the purchase price and date of the investment. For example, let us assume a person wants to start investing in small coins. At first this person can only invest in small qualities. He or she should keep track of all the purchases made, what was the day and the how much was bought. The reason it is important for the person to do that is, let us say, 10 years later he wanted to sell the coins. If the coins are now worth $5,000 now and you can not provide any documents on what you bought it for you will be taxed on the overall $5000.00. On the other hand, if you have the proof that the coins cost that person $3,000 then that person will be taxed on only $2,000. I want to also point out that if you don’t sell any of the coins or investment during a year there is no need to put it on the return.

If a person is dealing with an investment company that deals with buying and selling stocks, then the company should be sending the form 1099-B to you. Be aware that this form only will come out once the investment is sold. Lots more can be said on this subject.
