hey guys, sorry to bug you all but i searched the site and couldnt come up with an answer to my question. I want to know how many schedule d's can you send the irs? i mean if you have over 200 trades, thats a butt load of D's, couldnt i just sum up the losses or gains and just say that on 1/1/02 i bought 100 xyz and then sold it during the year for a net loss or profit (sum of all my trades) and just show the actual loss or gain? and then maybe add a note saying that detailed transaction history available upon request would that work or do i have to go through all the freaking trades and list them? i know there is software for this but well you know the story. I had several brokers and cant load all of it easily. dont want to mess with that. so any ideas if i can do it that way, just listing one transaction showing a short term gain/loss or do i have to type out each individual transaction?? many thnx guys.
