Sorry to have to ask a question like this in the forum, but I am kind of stuck. (and maybe your answer will help others..) A month or two ago I recieved an e-mail from IB asking: We would like to confirm that the deposit(s) you have made to your IRA account with Interactive Brokers contain the proper descriptions. To ensure that our tax reporting is correct, please send us an e-mail to email@example.com if the following description of your IRA deposit is incorrect: IRA Account Type: TRADITIONAL Amount: $xxxxx.00 IRA Deposit Type: New Contribution IRA Tax Year: 2001 My IRA deposit type was NOT a new contribution, it was an IRA transfer, two very different cats. If IB told the IRS that I deposited that ammount as a new contrib, It'd be bad. I can imagine an infinite ammount of pain and suffering for me trying to sort it all out. My problem is this: I e-mailed help three times, on 7/3, 7/7, and 7/23. In each I explained the situation and asked them to respond, confirming that my account has the proper deposit type listed. I have not heard back from at all. for all I know, my e-mail messages have vanished into the ether. Who can I talk to in order to get this resolved before Jan 1, 2002??? Thanks for your contribution to this board.
