I just opened a Roth IRA and have a $10 fee for the first year. Any
recommendations on how to categorize the fee?

Thx!

I categorize mine as "IRA Fees".

It's possible that these fees can be deducted as a Miscellaneous Itemized
Deduction on Sched A. If you link your categories to TurboTax, then assign
the category to Schedule A subject to 2%-AGI. I don't have Q running now,
but there should be a line that says "other expenses such as investment,
safe deposit box, etc." Since the 2%-AGI limit is imposed, you may never
have enough items in this category to add up to a deduction, but those items
might as well end up in the right area.

Thanks Rick, I found the line item you mention. It's "investment management
fees."
