Is it acceptable to the IRS (in the sense that it'll cause minimal confusion) to aggregate each of the lots into the single buy/sell order in which they were entered, or must I enumerate each lot as the actual confirmations delineate?
Also, can I use stock symbols, or should I use the company name?
Do at least one entry for each sale shown on the 1099-B. If you purchased what was sold on more than one purchase date you can combine purchases and use "various" for the date. You must still separate between long- and short-term, though.
I use symbols.
