Next, step #5 would result in a wash sale, where there would be a disallowed $10/share loss on the shares purchased on 07/02/2001. The replacement shares bought on 08/01/2001 would have their effective purchase date changed to 07/02/2001, and their original cost basis of $30/share would be increased by $10/share to $40/share.Right.Now if steps #4 and #5, respectively, became(4) 100 shares from 06/01/2001 redeemed on 08/08/2001 morning at $40/share(5) 100 shares from 07/02/2001 redeemed on 08/08/2001 afternoon at $40/sharethen I don't see any reason for a difference in the tax results.There isn't a difference. You have 100 shares with a basis of $40 and no bottom line recognized loss.Maybe someone else can find a better way of explaining this to you.Phil Marti
