Nevertheless, for Form 8949, the corrections to errors reported on a 1099-B for Capital Assets are only those designated for Box A (reported to the IRS).

For other "corrections" (the holding period stab) on 1099-B to Capital Assets reported for Box B or C (Supplemental Information, not reported to the IRS) to be recorded on Form 8949, ignore the 1099 errors and report the correct Cost Basis information on Form 8949 that your documentation (statements, confirms, etc) supports in Part 1 or Part 2 as appropriate.

Do I have the interpretations right now


Chew got it.
