What fun! But I got through it. I don't use tax software or a preparer. Just IRS fillable forms. Worse part was wading through all the fine print on the 1099B to see what had actually been reported to IRS. Apparently nothing as my stocks sold were all bought several years ago. I didn't have any short term gains or losses but did have a long term gain from securities litigation settlement that wasn't on a 1099B. Had to file two 8949s for my long term gains. More fun next year as I understand they will start reporting mutual fund basis. I'd love to see an impartial study of the additional tax revenue vs. the cost of preparing and processing all those 8949's.
