Hello Sir!

I have two brokarage accounts with DATEK brokarage firm
Both of them opened with a initial deposit of $5000 each.
I buy and sell stocks in each account separately during a
calander year. At the end of the year when i compute capital
gian/loss, i used FIFO method macthing stocks in each account
separately and then observing wash sale rule universally for both accounts.

It is not the right way?

When i contacted IRS, they told to combine the trasactions
in both accounts together and then apply FIFO method
to compute gain/loss observing wash sale rule.
