Tax-Loss Harvesting: How do I safely use Tax-Loss Harvesting if I have external accounts?*

If your Managed Portfolios account is invested in the same securities as those you hold in external accounts, trades in your external accounts can cause wash sales and wipe out harvested losses.

To help avoid wash sales, consider excluding securities that you hold in outside accounts. Managed Portfolios offers Selective Trading which lets you remove securities from your Managed Portfolios portfolio. If you remove a security using Selective Trading, the security will be automatically sold in your Managed Portfolios portfolio, and no further trades will be processed for that security. Please note that trades that result from removing or activating securities may have tax consequences.

Lastly, Tax-Loss Harvesting analyzes all of your investment accounts on Axos Invest Managed Portfolios, including IRAs. If you have an outside taxable account, IRA, 401(k), or 403(b) account, you can make a transfer or rollover to Managed Portfolios.
