My understanding is I can "ignore" wash sales, if at the end of the year if I sell all the stock and do not repurchase for 30 days. Is this correct?

Does that mess up anything with the new 1099 basis reporting rules? I see a "Wash Sale Loss Disallowed" item on the form. Does that number mean anything if I sold all the stock that had wash sale losses previous to the end of the year? (Dec 27th I believe) (And have not repurchased since)...

Thanks for your help,
