I bought 130 shrs. of a position at Broker A on 01/04, and sold all 130 shrs. for a loss on 03/17 … still at Broker A.Forgetting to check the date, I bought 270 shrs. of the same position at Broker B on 04/12. The result of the wash sale is that you have two lots:Lot A: 130 shares, purchase date 1/4, basis whatever you paid for them plus the loss from the 3/17 sale.Lot B: 140 shares, purchase date 4/12, basis whatever you paid for them.Then on 05/31, I decided it was too risky and sold off half … 135 shrs.Since you didn't specify otherwise, we apply FIFO. You sold all of Lot A and 5 shares of Lot B. Your remaining shares are all Lot B.What is the best way to report this on the 2011 Schedule D?Report just two sales. The 3/17 sale you show as a wash sale. The 5/31 sale you use "various" as the purchase date.And since I sold the remaining 135 shrs. in 2012, will they just be reported normally?Yes, on your 2012 Schedule D.PhilRule Your Retirement Home Fool
