  • RSU Wash-Sale Rules

Looking for expert financial advice on RSU wash sale rules? Our experienced DimovTax team of tax professionals understands the ins and outs of RSU taxation, including the complex wash sale rules that can trip up even the savviest investors.

The wash sale rule is a regulation designed to prevent investors from taking advantage of tax loopholes by selling an asset at a loss and then immediately buying it back. The rule applies to RSUs (restricted stock units) as well as other securities, such as stocks and bonds.

Under the wash sale rule, if you sell RSUs at a loss and then buy substantially identical RSUs within 30 days before or after the sale, the loss is disallowed for tax purposes. This means that you won’t be able to deduct the loss from your taxable income, which could result in a higher tax bill. 

As tax professionals, we can help you develop a tax-efficient strategy that takes into account your specific financial situation and goals, while also ensuring compliance with all applicable laws.

For instance:

·       We can help you identify potential wash sales and recommend ways to avoid them, such as delaying a purchase or selling RSUs in a tax-efficient manner.

·       We can help you determine the best way to liquidate your investments for the most tax-favorable outcome.

·       We can also help you minimize your tax liability by taking advantage of other deductions and credits that you may be eligible for.

By working with us, you can be confident that your RSU investments are being managed in a way that maximizes your tax benefits while minimizing your risk of running afoul of the wash sale rule and other tax regulations.

Don’t let the wash sale rule derail your RSU investments. Contact DimovTax today to schedule a consultation and learn how we can help you make the most of your RSUs.
