GreenTraderTax - April 15 Tax Deadline Moved To July 15 & the CARES Act April 13, 2020 12:00 ET

The IRS moved the April 15 tax deadline to July 15, 2020, thereby postponing tax filings and tax payments. Most states also delayed the tax deadline.

Usually, a TTS trader must submit a 2020 Section 475 election by April 15, 2020. Will the IRS accept a 2020 Section 475 election made by the postponed July 15 deadline?

The new CARES Act includes significant economic aid and tax relief provisions. If you have NOLs from business activities in 2018, 2019, and 2020, CARES allows five-year NOL carrybacks for immediate tax relief. TCJA had repealed NOL carrybacks and only allowed carryforwards. Traders, eligible for trader tax status (TTS), might have NOLs from trading expenses and Section 475 ordinary losses. With NOL carrybacks allowed for 2020, it makes a 475 election essential if you have YTD losses.

Join CPAs Robert A. Green and Darren Neuschwander of GreenTraderTax.com, to learn about these developments.

Volaris Capital - Why Volatility is Not Yet an Asset Class - How to Find Sustainable Yield and Tail Risk Opportunities in the Options Market April 29, 2020 12:00 ET

S&P 500 Index option-based volatility indexes have untenable risk-return profiles. These volatility indexes are not designed with consideration of important real-world risk characteristics of options and fail to represent volatility as a differentiated asset-class with relevance to the long-term utility of investors. Implications of the S&P 500 Index return distribution on the profit and loss (P&L) distribution of a directionally hedged option position are presented. The ensuing five cardinal characteristics of options on S&P 500 Index, central to designing viable volatility investment strategies, are enumerated.
