Hi all !

Last year I sold a few covered calls on a stock holding that was in red.
I did this for a few months and made some money.

When I got my tax stmt from my brokerage, the options trades were clearly marked as "not reported to IRS".

Does this mean I don't have to report these to IRS on my tax returns ?
( I bet not ! :-) )

You are responsible for reporting the options trades.

It is not a mistake that the brokerage did not report the option trades. I do not understand why but brokerages are not required to report option transactions.
