: : What is the correct setting for the short term / long term for US IRS rules on Mutual Funds. I see there is a medium term setting. The default came as Medium term 0m-1y, Long term 6m-1yr. I'm under the impression that anything below one year is short term, anything more than one year is long term.

: I'm assuming BOTH medium and long term should be set to 0m-1yr. Correct?

Hi Chris,

You are correct. For the US both the long/medium should be set to 0 months
and 1 year. This is currently the default on new installations.

At one time, when there was actually a medium term used, they used to be 18
month default for the long term. This setting may have been a leftover
from that time.
