This question concerns "Wash" sales of stocks between taxable and tax-deferred accounts:e.g.1) Jan 15th, 1999: In a taxable brokerage account, I purchase 100 shares of XYZ for $2 per share (total = $200)2) Dec 1st, 1999: I sell the 100 shares of XYZ purchased in step (1) above for a loss, say at $1 per share (loss = $100).3) Dec 1st, 1999: I purchase 100 shares of XYZ in a regular IRA for $1 per share.Question 1: Since the loss occurred in a taxable account, can I use it to adjust the basis in the repurchased shares in the IRA?Question 2: Can I take the $100 as a short term capital loss on my 1999 tax return?Question 3: If I switch the accounts in the above example (make the original purchase in the IRA, then sell at a loss in the IRA, then immediately repurchase the shares in a taxable account), may I adjust his basis in the repurchased shares in the taxable account for the IRA loss?Thanks!
