I don't understand how any of this would be a wash trx. You purchased 80 shares in Nov 2013, then 80 shares in June 2014 and 150 shares in Nov 2014. You sold 150 in Dec for a loss and 80 at the same time for another loss.You did not repurchase any.

But, of course, I confuse easily.


Here are transactions related to one stock holding traded in two different taxable accounts.

a. Acc#1: 11/23/13 Purchased 80 shares
b. Acc#1: 06/16/14 Purchased 80 shares
c. Acc#2: 11/20/14 Purchased 150 shares
d. Acc#2: 12/01/14 Sold 150 shares (loss)
e. Acc#1: 12/01/14 Sold 80 shares (loss)

Seems like transaction d creates a wash transaction.
1. If the shares in transaction c are washed, is this a special case where the purchase date gets moved up?
2. How many shares are actually washed- 70 or 150?
