TP exercised and sold ISO shares on the same date. The total FMV of share on the date of the option was exercised (Box 4 of Form 3921) was $24,847 but the cost basis was $24,748 (Box 1e Form 1099-B).
The bargain element (FMV – Exercise price) already included in Box 1 Form W-2.
There was a difference of $99. In reporting into Form 8949 Part 1 Box A, which figure should be used: $24,847 Form 3921 or $24,748 Form 1099-B as both are reported to the IRS?
Thanks for your time and comment.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Use the 1099B reporting. The difference is likely either a fee for the transaction or a share price difference for the timing difference between exercise and sell. e.g. exercise at 9:00 and sell at 9:02 could experience a change in price per share.
@George4Tacks Thanks for your time.
TP provided us with more information as follows:
The company’s year-end letter to employees, Form 3921 and the Stock Plan Transactions Supplement, which was issued after Form 1099-B and was not reported to the IRS, all had the same figure $24,847.
Does that mean Form 1099-B has been superseded?
The 1099-B is NOT superseded. You may need to make an adjustment that will show up as a code B
