<< For Ex. I buy STOCK A on 01/15/99 100 @ 30 and on 01/31/99 150 @ 25

I sell on 02/15/99 the complete 250 @ 50 in one lot and pay $100 as commission. Now this means the 1099-B would show the Sale price as 250*50 - 100 = $12,400

My cost was $3000+100=$3100 & $3750+100=$3850.

So should I show this as:

250 sh STOCK A various 02/15/99 12400 6950 +5450 >>

That's the one. One line per sale (unless it's a wash or split between long- and short-term).
