Hi All,

I've checked the FAQ's but am still a little confused regarding my situation. I "sold"(actually redeemed) shares of a bond fund in 2006 and am not sure if the Wash Sales Rules apply to me.

According to the instructions I receive on TurboTax, the rules apply to me if I "bought or reinvested dividends in substantially identical securities between June 10, 2006 and July 9 2006" and I "held these securities (did not sell them as part of this sale)".

I should point out that I used money from this bond fund to pay for a new roof and to transfer them to my personal bank account. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
