Obviously, my Schedule D will have to reflect the sale, but is this listed as "open short", or do I (by hand) close the short using the basis of 100 shares owned long in my other account. It's a constructive sale of the shares you hold long. You need to report as if the short was closed using the shares you hold long.Then depending on how these positions are closed out in the future, you'll have to do some more reporting (mainly the disposition of the long position) taking into account that you have already reported some gain or loss this year.--Peter
