This year we made monthly redemptions from Vanguard short term bond fund.

We recieved a sheet from Vanguard showing average cost basis for each transaction if we elect to use the Average Cost Single Catagory method.

Some of these transactions show a loss, and some of this loss is recorded as Disallowed Loss Amount.

Were you by any chance reinvesting distributions, and if so, how often? It sounds like you may be looking at wash sales, which have nothing to do with the method you chose for determining basis.
