<That implies to me that only sales from fully taxable accounts to fully taxable accounts are subject to the wash sale rules.>

My wife and I file a joint tax return. If I sell a position for a loss in a taxable account in my name and buy it back in her IRA. The letter of the law seems to say that is not a wash sale. The contrary opinion posted would indicate that I am on shaky ground. More discussion on this matter would be appreciated.
