"Were you by any chance reinvesting distributions, and if so, how often? It sounds like you may be looking at wash sales, which have nothing to do with the method you chose for determining basis"

We were getting our monthly dividends from this mutual fund re-invested in this same fund. Maybe the disallowable loss amount is equal to the monthly dividend, I'll have to check.
But the distributions we took went into Vanguard money market fund. I'd be surprised if the Short Term Bond fund is considered a like-investment to the money market fund. But you might be right. Once it was in the money market fund.

Thanx for your imput.

Vanguard and IRS are both closed today, no one to talk to. I'll give Vanguard a call monday morning.
