OK!! I couldn't find this in FAQs.
I need to fund my SEP prior to my time extension for 98 IRS on 8-15. I have shares in a regular trading account that have a capital loss. Is it still a wash if I sell shares and move the funds into the SEP, then repurchase (within 30 days) for holding in the SEP?
I expect so but maybe I got lucky and found a loophole.
As I don't think I need to report Capital Gains in the SEP how would IRS know if my transactions only show a capital loss in my regular account? This is only hypothetical as I would never cheat on my taxes.
