If you didn't specify which lots you sold you have the following entries on Sch. D10000 shares XYZ bought various sold 1/16/01 1006.68 7773.05 (6766.37)10000 shares XYZ-wash ------> gain of 6766.375000 shares XYZ bought 1/3/01 1/16/01 503.37 300.25 203.12You will increase the basis for the 10000 of the 14000 shares you still hold by the 6766.37 loss you cannot recognize now. To do this correctly, you should calculate the loss for each of the earlier lots separately (I lumped them together) and you also adjust the holding periods for each of these groups of shares so that they start on the original purchase dates.Example: 1000 shares bought 2/17/00 new basis (1510.05/15000*1000 - 1469.95)*(-1) + 1140.95/19000 * 1000If this isn't clear (and I'm not sure it is), just ask again.Ira
