I am not here to argue with you, but I have a question for you: do you honestly believe that anyone from ANV BOD reads this message board, and do you think they will get scared so they buy out their freedom? Your answer will help me determine your sanity level..
Are you the one who is going to shell out tens of millions of dollars for expensive litigators or do you expect them to take it pro-bono or on a contingency basis? No lawyer wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole.
You are out of your mind suggesting that there is enough evidence to support criminal charges when we can't even present viable evidence for the civil case. Your comments are full of ignorance and noise that have absolutely no substance. At this point, we will be lucky if we get more than 8 or 10 cents on a dollar when all is said and done. It is sad, unfair, so is life.
Check out the latest court filings that show the bondholder/owner response to suppress the appeal. So many things have happened as claimed by the opposing party, so the court will unlikely unravel the previous judgment. I also want to ask you to stop your nonsense about the jury trial and prosecuting the BOD. You are misleading the shareholders and give a false hope. Even people responsible for financial crisis that wiped the hundreds of billions of dollars from World economy were not prosecuted. Why would you expect anything to happen to ANV BOD.
At this point, would you rather wait another few years or have them set the price of warrants so we could possibly sell it(if it ever trades again) and claim loses on your taxes?
What you are proposing falls under rules of "Trader" by IRS which allows you to do exactly what you propose. It allows to "settle" all trades at the end of each year. However to qualify to be a "TRADER" you need to be a day-trader with the proven track record of making multiple trades every day.
Additionally, the statements from your brokerage firm will not report a sale of security, so you would have to manually override values on that tax form. This will result in a red flag for IRS because of mismatch of values between the submitted form and your taxes.
This topic about reporting loss on 2015 taxes has been discussed in previous posts. Google it before asking the same question. @july32nd is correct. You can't report is until there are worthless warrants in your account.
