I sold covered calls twice in 2001. The first time they expired worthless, the second time my shares were called. I recorded the called shares as a sale of stock. Where do I record the option sales? My thought was to put them in as a sale on the date they were written and a buy for $0 at the time they expired. I would do this in the stock reporting section of Turbotax. Does this make sense? What have others done?
