I am quite familiar with the wash sale rules on stock purchases. But do the rules also apply to mutual funds with dividend reinvestment? I have a bond mutual fund, which pays out monthly dividends, which I reinvest in the fund. This means I am buying new shares every 30 days or so. If I sell some shares, will the wash sale rule apply to any capital loss? To qualify for the capital loss do I have to suspend the dividend reinvestment for at least a month and then sell the shares?Thanks for your time and help.
