Your broker is required to tell the IRS about anything you sell, and give the amount of the proceeds. YOU are supposed to keep records of everything you buy. If you didn't keep your confirmation slips, perhaps you can figure from your monthly statements. Your loss is what the stock cost you minus what you got when you sold it. It is YOUR responsibility to provide that figure, accurately. Note that on schedule D you must give the date you bought the stock, also. Probably your broker can provide the information if you have "lost" it, but that's being nice, not a requirement. Next year you will know how these things work and won't be surprised. Best wishes, Chris
