Has anyone had problems doing the GLD 1099B calculations entry into their taxes?
No. It's pretty straightforward. You have a Schedule D entry which shows the sales proceeds from the 1099-B as both the cost and the sales amount. The purchase date is the date you first purchased GLD.
You have a miscellaneous itemized deduction (subject to 2% AGI) for the same amount.
You need to reduce your cost basis in your records for the GLD you still own by the amount shown on the 1099-B.
