Investors are reminded to consider the various objectives, fees, and other risks associated with investing in Mutual Funds. Please read the prospectus accordingly.

IBKR does not provide legal or tax advice and nothing in this Tax Loss Harvesting Tool should be construed as tax advice. The Tax Loss Harvesting Tool is designed to simplify your calculation of the potential tax benefits of selling securities subject to a loss and, if you choose, replacing them with other securities you select. Tax laws are complex and subject to change. Capital gains are not taxed in all jurisdictions and thus the Tax Loss Harvesting Tool may not be suitable for tax residents of certain jurisdictions. You should consider consulting a tax advisor to determine your specific situation.
IBKR PROVIDES THE TAX LOSS HARVESTING TOOL FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY.

It does not consider positions you may hold or transactions you may undertake in other accounts (including those at IBKR) and the effect they would have on any transaction undertaken with the Tax Loss Harvesting tool.
The Tax Loss Harvesting Tool seeks to maximize either short term or long term losses, as selected by you within the tool, and will override any default tax lot matching method otherwise applicable to you or your account settings. Where “any position with a capital loss” is selected, the Tax Loss Harvesting Tool seeks to maximize any losses.
Non-US residents should be aware that the Tax Loss Harvesting tool differentiates between short term versus long term capital losses based on IRS definitions which apply to US residents; similarly, the application of wash sale rule is also based on IRS definitions and apply to US residents.
