I am quite active in the stock market beside a full time job. I trade about 4/5 times a month and have a portfolio of over $250,000. This is, of course, a "for profit" activity for tax purposes. As a part of this activity I incur quite a bit of expenses - for subscriptions to several market investment newsletters, an on-line service for technical analysis, AOL for business information and portfolio updates, use of a computer, telephone line etc. My question is whether, and how, I can report this activity as a business for tax purposes. Do I need to incorporate, or create a business entity of some sort, or continue filing as an individual and use Sched. C for reporting this business? I would greatly appreciate your opinion. Thanks.
