The most confusing part of tax preparation for me is figuring whether or not I can claim the margin interest that I paid to buy stocks in 1997. My margin interest was about $750. Dividends paid on stocks were about $275. It's very difficult to understand the rules concerning margin interest. They start talking about passive investments and the like. For several years I have forgone the possible claim. Even if I claimed it somehow, I'd probably have to use Form 4952.Does anybody out there claim margin interest?Any help would be greatly appreciated.Pearlfinder
