I was planning to sell long held shares of GM this week when I realized GM paid out a dividend on 12-10-00. Will this create
a wash sale? If so, is there any way around it?

I neglected to say the dividends were reinvested on 12-10-00. The shares would be sold at a loss. This seems to me to create a wash sale if I sell all my shares now. Is this correct?
