I find it incredible that Wells Fargo Advisors FiNet has found a rule with the IRS that they claim prohibits FAs from collecting commissions on their family or personal IRA accounts. They will still charge commissions and fees for these accounts, but the FA payout is 0%! Any other major firms doing this?
