It does not. It only bypasses the 8949 if you enter the figures in the 8949 bypass boxes at the top of the 1099B worksheet.
Anything you enter in the 1099B entry table below the bypass boxes will appear on the 8949s.
Ohh, maybe if you import from a brokerage, all the covered sales end up bypassing the 8949...if thats the case, you wont see them on the 8949 because they're not entered there.
Indeed I did import from the financial institution. When it transfers to the state return as summarized totals, the state wants every transaction listed. The suggestion from the Proseries state return is to go back to the federal return and list all the transactions on the Form 8949.
