Margin Loan Interest Deduction

One area of confusion in the area of tax deductions comes from interest. Is there a margin loan interest deduction? How does a margin loan fit into the overall interest deduction situation?

A margin loan is a loan taken out mainly for the purposes of investment. It uses stocks and other investment securities as collateral. The main benefit of a margin loan is that it allows you to keep your investments intact while at the same time using them to provide additional funds for investment. There are some drawbacks to margin loans as well as the potential for good. Like all investments, there is risk that is almost always directly connected to the potential rate of return.
