I have decided to take a loss on some of my mutual fund positions. I have a question about the loss. I am going to sell a portion of shares from all the shares I hold in a certain fund. The company tells me they will just report the value of the sale to the IRS and that I will report which shares I sold, thus calculating the loss. So if I go in and identify the method I use (ie average price, FIFO, Specific share) and stay consistent will I have a problem? I thought you had to tell the fund company what method you were going to do. What else do I need to know about this?JDW
