tacful: "Buying a stock within your IRA and selling an identical stock in a taxable account within 30 days has no bearing on the tax treatment of the sale. IRAs & taxable accounts are like apples & oranges. Wash sale rules pertain to buying & selling in taxable accounts only, not IRAs."
That issue is not as clear as tacful suggests. It has been discussed numerous times ont his board, and their is clearly a divided opinion among the resident.
I have even participated in the discussion (but I am not a residnet pro, more like an interested kibitizer).
(I beleive that the search function only covers 6 months of posts these days, so the best search is probably to go back 2-3 years and collapse the threads and review by thread title)
