I remember reading a thread sometime ago where the poster said that any financial advice was tax deductable. I have searched the forum but have been unable to find that thread. I paid a financial adviser (FA) $5.5k toward the end of 2005 & had assumed that fee would be tax deductable. Talking to the FA's offsider the other day & upon questioning if I should claim that fee as a business expense (I'm an individual, not a business) I was told that that fee was not tax deductable which really threw me & I didn't really question that response. The fee was for an initial "Statement of Advice", assistance in the application of those recomendations & on going help & advice as needed ect ect Would that really be the case? Is that fee really NOT tax deductable? Thanks in advance for any response, it is appreciated.
