Investment/Advisory fees are entered as an itemized deduction of Schedule A subject to 2% of your adjusted gross income.
If you have any of the investment-related expenses below, enter them under Other Investment Expenses, in Retirement and Investments.
- Safety deposit fees
- Investment advisory fees
- IRA custodial fees
- Amortized bond premiums
- Depreciation of equipment you used to manage your investments (such as a computer)
Remember, in order to get a tax benefit from this, you need to have more than 2% of your adjusted gross income in miscellaneous itemized deductions, plus you need to itemize your deductions on Schedule A. If you owe Alternative Minimum Tax, these miscellaneous deductions are not deductible.
