There was a controversy about avoiding the wash sale rules by selling stock outside of a retirement account at a loss and then repurchasing the same stock within 30 days in an IRA. IRS recently published a regulation prohibiting such transactions to avoid the wash sale rules.

What if husband sells in his tax stock account. Then wife buys same stock in Roth account?

wash sale?
