He didn't say anything about reinvesting, let alone dividends from a Bond Fund?? He quoted in his first post all he needed to know: that he had no wash sale--he reinvested in a roof, not the same bond fund.


Vanguard calls the monthly distributions from their bond funds dividends. They are not qualified dividends, but the distributions are dividends. It is not unusual to have reinvestment set as an option for mutual or bond fund distributions.

The point I was trying to make was that what he did with the specific funds is irrelavant. He could have rebought with different funds and still generated a wash sale.
