    Would appreciate someone to unconfuse me. On my IB Schedule D Worksheet, it has a subtotal under column d (sales prices) of $359, 673, then on the next line it has a total of $375, 201, with no clue as to why the increase. Anyone know what that might be? The gross proceeds on my 1099B is the $359,673 number. Thanks, Stosh

    I'm not an IB customer and probably shouldn't/can't give you an answer. Could that number be your cost basis? Did you lose 15K + last year?

    If you had option sales this could account for the difference.

    Good catch, pbj. I just went through the entire list and found some options that add up to the exact difference. Thanks
    I haven't traded many options, but this begs the question: Are options not reported on the 1099's?? Stosh
