Maybe I can explain it this way. If you prepare your tax return, and you owe money, you mail your tax return to one of IRS's lock boxes.If you have a refund or owe no taxes, you mail it to the address where refunds are processed.Using the above as a guideline, IRS considers a $0 gain/loss the same category as a gain as there are only wash sale rules for losses. And since a $0 gain/loss clearly is not a loss, then it has no exception is falls into the same pot as a gain.I hope this dead horse is now buried.
