For whatever reason (and I wish I knew what it is...but I don't), broker houses are exempt from filing the Form 1099B for option transactions. I tried to do a search for options and taxes, and this is as close as I get. I have gains this year from buying calls. I don't know where to report them, though.. Do I:- Report these on Schedule D just like stocks?- Report these on Form 6781? (What is a Sec 1256, anyway?)- Report them someplace else entirely?- Don't report them at all and hope I never get audited (Whee! Tax free income!)
