After a not so short hiatus, the Tax Update podcast is again posted, this time looking at IRS Revenue Ruling 2008-5 that deals with issue of a taxpayer selling securities at a loss in a taxable account and then purchasing identical securities in a regular or Roth IRA. The issue is one that practitioners have discussed for years, but which the IRS just now is getting around to issuing a formal ruling on.
