Cost basis adjustment in Mutual Fund

Discussion in 'Order Execution' started by terejoy033, Mar 22, 2011.

  1. closed out a mutual fund last year and used average cost single category method.
    After calculating, the results turned to be about $1800 loss ( the cost basis is minused), but I got a statement from my broker which displayed only &1750 loss. A little asterix attributes the difference to a "wash sale adjustment." How do I report on Schedule D with no information about the wash sale?

    It probably had to do with a reinvestment of dividends within thirty days of the sale. the disallowed loss added back to basis is now 'allowed' because the fund was liquidated.
