Keep tax deferred accounts out of Transactions

I want to keep Tax Deferred accounts out of Transactions.  With numerous such accounts, my choices appear to be: 1) manually remove ~50 transactions a month as "duplicate", 2) pay my accountant/CPA extra month to carefully filter/remove these when dealing with taxes, 3) don't put these accounts into Mint, and 4) seek out what I'm missing for an easy answer or enhancement request.    So I put in one of my tax deferred accounts as a test. One Ameritrade account has 8 sub-accounts. There is no value for me to see the plethora of internal transactions, it only complicates my use of Mint and slows me down, plus adds opportunity for errors in tax reporting later.

My biggest reasons to use Mint are to be proactive with taxes by categorizing expenses (tax deferred accounts are irrelevant to that), and to remain vigilant about our 40 or so accounts, to which tax deferred accounts have no bills, no payment dates, no late fees, no overdraft...basically no value in transactions.

How can I see tax deferred accounts in Mint without being required to deal with their individual transactions?

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
