There's a discussion going on the board regarding B&H's fee and commissions.

Here's a link to the start of the thread (the question comes up a couple of responsed down the thread):

Basically it boils down to:

1. Are the $1.99 and $2.99 commissions are added to your cost basis of a position or is it a deductible schedule A expense?

2. Ditto for the $9.99 flat trading fee.

Here's a link to B&H's fee schedule:

I'd appreciate it if any responses are posted directly to the B&H board.

Thanks in advance.
