Is Your 1099 Accurate?... TAPro imported transactions, reconciled his 1099, generated tax reports and proved there was a $500,000+ error in his 1099. Some customers used TAPro to find 1099 data errors worth $1,000s. This is a reason our founder created TAPro.

Our founder is a cost basis consultant for major brokerages and currently resides in NY/NJ working in the financial district.

Wash Sales Within and/or Between Accounts... Brokerages calculate wash sales within your account. The IRS states that you must calculate wash sales within and between your accounts. This means 1099s are an estimate and you need to complete IRS forms with final results. TAPro calculate wash sales within and between accounts so you can generate accurate tax reports.

Calculate Wash Sales and Cost Basis...
We offer a regulatory cost-basis solution providing the functionality necessary for compliance with EESA cost basis regulations.

Trade Journal and Tax Reports... Serious traders keep a trade journal. TAPro keeps you informed and your trades organized and ready for tax reporting. TAPro reconciles your 1099 and calculates wash sales, then prints reports or generate a .txf file that imports into tax software like: TurboTax(tm) and TaxCut(tm).

Import Transaction History...
TAPro includes import filters for loading transactions and symbols. If you have questions, visit Data Import for tips.

Trusted by Accountants for 12+ years... The IRS has accepted TAPro reports 100% of the time. If you are a trader or a tax advisor, you can now save time and fill tax reports with TAPro.

Toolbox (Reconciliation and Reports)...
TAPro includes insightful reconciliation tools, views and reports. For example, TAPro enables you to view reports with Original Trade Dates or Adjusted Trade Dates. This is important because transactions use Original Trade Dates whereas 1099s use Adjusted Trade Dates.
