I have an IRA account (contributions were deductible, or pre-tax) which had one stock that has now gone to practically zero in value. If I sell the stock, withdraw the nearly zero proceeds, and pay the penalty on those proceeds, is there a way to deduct the loss from my earned income?Probably not, but it seems worth checking.The commission for selling this stock is probably greater than the value of the stock, and I will end up owing the custodian brokerage money. I am not eligable to contribute to this IRA because of my company's 401K plan. How would the payment of that commission be treated for taxes? Can I legally pay the commission, which is essentially a contribution?Thanks,pfdaly
