Since cost basis is being reported to IRS on a 1099-B for bonds I sold, and I don't agree with the cost basis, I'm wondering what to do. It's going to be an $86 difference in reportable income. I bought bonds in 2012. I paid $4935.95 for the bonds and commissions, and $86.84 in accrued interest, for a total of $5,022.79. I sold the bonds in 2013. The 1099-B from the broker says cost basis is only $4935.95. In the 2012 tax statement I got from the broker, there is a section in the back called Accrued Interest Paid on Purchases. In it is the $86.84 I paid when I bought the bonds. So, what do I do with this number for 2013 taxes? Can I just add it to the cost basis, or subtract it from what I report from the 1099-INT? Is it something I should have put on my 2012 taxes? Did the broker screw up?
