Who can help with investment related tax questions?

I have specific questions related to my investments and claiming losses on my taxes. Will any CPA be able to help me out or do I need to look for certain certifications?

Hi Gavin; If your question relates to the tax treatment for different kinds of investments, I local CPA should do just fine.

Gavin,

The link below is to an IRS publication which covers many investment related issues (not for the faint of heart).

http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p550.pdf

There are also guides at sites like aarp.com, yahoo finance, etc.

You may want to spend a little time getting as familiar as you can with the concepts before talking to a CPA or attorney.
