I read the FAQ for wash sales and have a pretty good understanding. My question is how to do the actual reporting on the tax return. During the year I did a little daytrading.Example:Mar 1stBuy 100 shares XYZ for $10000Sell 100 shares XYZ for $9500Mar 2ndBuy 100 shares XYZ for $10000Sell 100 shares XYZ for $10300I am totally out of the stock by year end. Can I record the 2 transactions seperatly, or do I have to record it as one transaction with an adjusted cost basis ($500 loss plus the second purchase of $10000 for a cost basis of $10500)??Either way its a $200 capital loss.Also, what if the same senario occurs except I also have a seperate long term hold position in the same stock?Utrecht
