For some reason I'm very confused by the wording of this question that shows up if I answer "yes" to "Did you buy or reinvest dividends in substantially identical stocks between 5/2/2007 and 7/1/2007"?Yes I did, so I hit "Yes". Then this question shows up next:"Did you sell some or all of these substantially identical stocks in this sale?"This is where I get confused. Which "sale" is this referring to when it says "this" sale?Here's the details:1) I bought shares on 3/20/2007.2) I bought more shares on 5/22/2007.3) I sold all shares from 1) and 2) on 6/1/2007, both lots for at loss.Since 2) occurs within 30 days of 3), I believe this qualifies as a "wash sale".Yet when I answer "yes" to the question above (the one I'm confused on), TurboTax puts in both lots as loss in Schedule D. I thought the sale of the first lot 1) was supposed to be considered a wash sale. So did I answered the question wrong?
