Deductible Investment-Related Expenses
Do you invest in stocks, bonds or mutual funds? If you do, you may be able to deduct certain expenses related to your investments. To be deductible, the expenses must be ordinary and necessary and related to the production of taxable income, or for the management of property held for the production of income, reports the Michigan Association of CPAs.
