Bob: I have another question related to my YHOO fiasco. How do I report those shares that I sold when I do my taxes next Feb/March/April timeframe? Do I show that I sold the shares and show the loss and then write a note that says it was a wash sale?

If I don't report it and there is no record of this sale how will the IRS ever believe me in future when I sell the other shares at the increased cost basis?

Thanks, again, in advance.
