Does anyone know if the gains from buying/selling options on an index such as the S&P 500 (SPX) are treated as commodities for tax purposes? The rule for commodities treats futures on the indeces as commodities (favorable tax treatment). The rule also says that "non-equity options" are treated as commodities as well. Still, options on the QQQ and the SPY are treated as equities. Are options on the SPX and NDX treated like commodities?

TIA for any input.
