As a partner in a trading firm you are not sutject to SE taxes, so don't compute or include them in your tax estimates. Your trading firm should be able to better answer any tax questions you have than we are. It is a whole other world and you are likely to get totally wrong answers to "out-of-context" questions from us because we are NOT traders. ed

Ed is right. I held back on commenting until I could confirm with a CPA buddy of mine who is also an ex-trader. Rules for traders are very different.

If you have specific questions, present them with as much detail as possible and I will try to relay the Qs and As.
