Taxes - 1099B Gross and wash sales

Discussion in 'Taxes and Accounting' started by pandorasbox, Apr 4, 2007.

  1. Here's the deal:

    I trade stocks and use IB, they provide a prepared Sc D, which is great. I also use TradeLog to calculate wash sales and keep track of all my trades.

    The problem is that the total procceds from sales on my
    Sc D from IB and
    do not match. So which one do I use???

    Please help...

    I can only tell you what happened in my specific situation.

    The IRS examined my return and they went by the amount provided to them by my broker on the 1099B. When I responded to them I sent them a report generated by GainsKeeper with the wash-sales calculated and the amount was different from what the 1099B had. They obviously saw the difference in what I reported with my GainsKeeper report and what the 1099B had. They accepted it anyway.
