There is one stock I have actively traded this year in two different accounts. I just read that the wash-sale rule applies across multiple accounts, and I want to make sure I understand the implications of this. I know of course that each individual broker automatically adjusts for wash sales, As long as I have completely closed out my identical stock positions in in both accounts by eoy, I gather the numbers would add up correctly despite the fact the stock was traded in two different accounts?--or am I missing something? I'm trying to get a sense of what the IRS considers acceptable in this situation. If additional manual tinkering is necessary on the trader's part, what is the most convenient way to handle this when taxes come around? With an actively traded stock in two different accounts, it would be a real nightmare to go through all trades and try to adjust the numbers oneself. Thanks for your help.
