I use a mechanical strategy for some of my investing. This strategy tells me what to buy from month to month. Apparently, it is not the best thing come tax time...I bought a few shares of a company on November 1, 1999 for $175. I sold the shares on November 30, 1999 for $85. I then subsequently bought the same number of shares of the same company on December 6, 1999 for $86, then sold on January for $46. I have a wash sale for the November 30 sell and the December 6 buy, but I show an overall loss of $129 per share (175-46). My actual loss is $130 per share, because I had bought back at $86, rather than $85. How do I account for this additional dollar loss per share?Thanks
