pmarti writes (in part):

There is no wash sale here. The replacement shares were acquired more than 30 days after the sale.

I reply:

If I'm reading the original post correctly (a matter left in some doubt by the absence of column headings), the replacement shares were purchased on February 16, 1999, only one day after the original shares (which were purchased on January 15) were sold, and then sold on February 28. In that case, there is indeed a wash sale. --Bob
