What is everyones experience with companies or ETFs that issue a K-1 tax form? I have owned these before in tax free IRA so I never had to deal with them come taxtime.
I am particularly using commodity ETFs like DBA, DBO, DBC, UNG, KOL among others that are use future contracts on the commodities rather that actual posession.
I have read horror stories of having a trading loss, yet getting a K1 form for capital gains and interest.
I'm not worried about the extra paper work, my tax lady will deal with that. I just don't want to get the short dirty end of the stick with the tax man.
