Double Dipping(redirected from Double-dipping)
Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Medical, Idioms, Wikipedia.
The practice of receiving two incomes from the same source. It especially, but not exclusively, refers to a broker placing commission-based securities into a fee-based account. This means that the broker receives both commissions and fees from transactions on that account. While this is not illegal in itself, double dipping must conform to the prudent person rule.
