    What is a good tax software for E mini trade?
  2. The fact that so many people on here are all of a sudden looking for software for e-minis makes me believe that they don't understand the different tax treatment for Section 1256 contracts. Since you receive an end of the year 1099 with the gross P/L and the total commission costs, I don't think you would need anything sophisticated to determine the tax on the P/L. I think it gets more complicated for people just getting involved in trading and with expenses, trading losses, etc.

    So far as recording trades, it is 10x easier when compared to a high frequency of stock trades...
