Hi! I was trying to prepare my taxes using TaxCut software. I did that several years in row with different brokerage companies. they all provide consolidate statements where you can find 2 numbers-cost of basic and preceeds. you substract one from another and you get your PL for year(actually soft do it for you)))) this year i open acc in IB and make few thousands transactions during 2002. how do i calculate PL from their statements? i have no idea...entering each transaction will take forever.. on top of it they convert from stock and options to universal. now you got two statements. one for year for universal, but from old S you have to calculate month by month. right? they say you can download monthly statement into Excel... yeah right...and then what? it's all in A1 cell. how can i do a calculations? they say -you can download in MS Money. got error on their page all time. is anyone can tell me, how to get cost basics and preceeds from their monthly satements? Thank you!
