From the FAQ:1. [...] you must tell the broker which shares are being sold.2. [...] your broker must provide you with written confirmation of your instructions,Here's BrownCo's method of specific stock identification: They have a "Shares vs. purchase on" field on the order screen in which you can fill in a date. Thus, your trade confirmation will contain a "Shares vs. purchase on <date>" phrase.They have no knowledge of whether or not you actually own shares purchased on the date specified. I keep accurate specific tax lot information in Quicken. So, does this meet (or come close enough to) the IRS requirement?Ken
