I have a loss in NXTL in my personal account--500sh bought at 28.5 and it's now 23-24. I like the
stock.
Could I sell it from my personal account and buy it the same time in my Keogh account and take a
loss for '97 taxes, or do the wash sale rules apply because I am the promary beneficiary of my
Keogh trust?>>

KAT provided you with an EXCELLENT reply!!! If you haven't read it, you should really take the time to do so.

One of the reasons that it is EXCELLENT is because it agrees with my position on the question: you don't really know for sure, but it probably isn't worth the risk.

I'm glad that I'm on the right side of an issue for once.
