Can I write off my commission split?
You can deduct the split you pay to your Broker only if the 1099-MISC you receive at the end of the year includes the full amount of the commission (yours plus the Broker's). This would be highly unusual. In most cases, the 1099-MISC will reflect only the commission that you actually received.
