If I sell a bond fund in my taxable account at a loss, and then I immediately purchase it back in a tax-deferred account, am I subject to the wash sale rule, or am I able to claim the loss??

Basically, I am moving my fixed income holdings to a tax-advantaged account and would love to be able to claim the loss as well. I can always wait 30 days if I have to.

Thanks for any help,
