I am fairly new to the options game, and in 1999 I had two sales of calls for gains. I use an online broker, and when I received my 1099, those two trades were not reflected with my other sales and proceeds. How are they reported to the IRS? I thought they were treated the same as regular share sales for tax purposes, but why weren't they on the 1099? Did my o.l.b. screw up, or am I missing something here?
