I have several advisery accounts setup with our financial planner. Recently she (with my persmission) sold some funds and bought others to replace them. The brokerage firm executed the buy before the sell was complete so there was a shortfall for the funds for about 3 days. I was charged 9.5% interest for those three days. This is in a non-qualified brokerage account. It isn't a retirement account. In Quicken the downloaded transaction is listed as a Withdrawl but I suspect for tax purposes this may be best listed as something else. This is a cost that can be deducted. I use TT every year so it's important for me to get this right so TT knows how to handle it. Would this interest transaction be more appropriate as a Margin Interest Expense transaction?
For the record I do not care about the cost of the interest. Although I will let me advisor know that it happened in case she isn't aware of it.
