Subject:  1099B has deceased & estate sales Date:  3/17/2000  10:36 PM
Author:  GarryDL Number:  31992 of 128039

I had requested a new account for the estate but all the broker did was change the name on the account. Therefore the 1099-B has transactions before and after death and uses the decedent's SS#.

My concern is with 1040 Schedule D and reconciling Gross Proceeds to IRS satisfaction. I'm using TurboTax and want to input only the Decedent's transactions. Then, will attaching a note that shows which transactions are which that total to the Gross Proceeds be the right thing to do?
