I am looking for a good tax accountant in Toronto that could help me prepare my taxes. I have done a big number of trades, including short trades. I ended in the negative territory over the year. Not a big deal, I am learning. But, most likely I need to declare myself a day trader, though I have a full-time job . IB's reports are quite messy, so I am not sure I can sort things out myself. For one, I am not even able to calculate ACB to arrive at the same numbers (proceeds from sales) that IB has on the report. To make matter worse, first half of the year I only made two trades on cash account, and the rest was thousands of trades on margin. So, I am half capital losses half income losses. But the number on the T5008 is only one. Have no idea how to report it in two places. My experience finding an accountant is not very smooth - they either don't want to deal with me, or ask for per hour charge of $350, without telling me what the total charge will be. Seems like they don't quite know what they are dealing with and I am not about to pay $350 an hour to have them learn about trading tax laws. So, please, help me find a good accountant, or perhaps if you have done canadian taxes based on IB's reports and have some kind of spreadsheet that you can share, please let me know. I am going nuts over this thing.
