Per my 1099-B I have short and long term gains that are to be reported in a certain box letter, i.e. short term gains where basis is reported to the IRS that have Box A checked. This would go to Part I, 1b, however, Lacerte places values in 1a.
Is there a place to indicate the box that is checked?
Edit: Wait, you're not asking about the 8949 presentation, your complaint is just that the covered transactions flow to Line 1a, rather than Line 1b, of the Schedule D? Read the Schedule D instructions; that's where they're supposed to go unless there are column (g) adjustments.
Enter a 1 for "basis not reported to IRS" in either of the circled fields, for each transaction.
My basis was reported to the IRS. So I left that blank. Additionally the 1099-B states for these short term covered securities gains that Box A is checked. Yet Lacerte places the values in line 1a and I want them in line 1b (Box A).
Same is true for my long term covered securities where basis is reported and Box D is checked. These are showing on line 8a and I want them on 8b (Box D).
I have verified the dates relate to S/T and L/T, and have left Basis rptd blank.
