Where you choose to buy your Treasury Inflation Protected Securities (TIPS) is very important. As I mentioned in the article: Inflation Protection and Taxes, failing to put your TIPS into a tax advantaged account causes them to shed their inflation protection. That’s because taxes are assessed as if inflation doesn’t matter.
In this article I explain what kind of account works well to protect you from losing your inflation protection by taxation. I also provide links to three specific trading platforms that you can use. I also explain what the minimum trade requirements and fees are among other things.
This article briefly discusses the option to use a financial advisor. One of the problems I address is the paperwork that you must “sign” and links you can use to help you understand the legal and market speak that is used in the documents.
It also goes over account funding options.
