Hi Traders, Do any of you have brokers that report your forex trading activity to the IRS? None of my brokers ever have, due, so they say, to the "international nature of forex trading," whatever that's supposed to mean. If the IRS is never apprised of retail forex capital gains on the part of traders, why can't traders pretend they aren't making any profits for purposes of tax evasion. This is of course purely hypothetical and would be illegal in practice, but couldn't it be done with complete impunity? How would the IRS know whether or not forex traders are liable for taxation? What they don't know can't hurt us, can it?
