Desperate appeal for advice!
Previous 12 years I have self-filed, since retiring and suffering substantial investment loss with carry-over, (2000 and 2008).
During 2011-- A. I dabbled (6 turns) in /ES (E-mini futures) with small loss,
B. Subscribed to MFO and did about 100 trades, mostly profitable.

I expected TOS (Penson) to provide 1099's, such as Schwab has done, which I could easily enter on 1040, Sch D and D-1. TDAmertrade, for TOS, did not send a 1099 but on their site, provided a "GainsKeeper" gain/loss report. About the only correct items were the names of the companies on which we did options trades.

I would like to e-file via Turbo-Tax, entering each trade separately.
However, pending your response to my inquiry, I am working at filling out the forms in order to paper-file.

I upgraded to MF Pro and expect to experience small profits and continued filing is the reason I would like to e-file with Turbo-Tax. TIA
