I have short-term sales with wash sales. When I enter the summarized amounts for sales, cost and adjustments, the program requires me to enter a purchase date and a sales date. It does not accept various. I entered 12/31/20 for both dates and now these dates appear on the filed form 8949. Is this OK? Thanks for any direction you can provide to me.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Your position [Pro Series position-?] does not conform to the Form 8949 Instructions.
At page 3-4, under Exception 2, it states:
"Leave columns (b) and (c) blank."
Advising to put in a fake date does not conform top the Form 8949 instructions.
Your position of "whatever date for sale that you want to use" does not conform to the Form 8949
Instructions. At page 3-4, under exception 2, it is stated: "Leave columns (b) and (c) blank."
Putting in a date is not an equivalent of leaving those columns blank.
In the 2019 inputs for form 8949, the instructions were followed.
Please recode these inputs, so that the reporting conforms to the Form 8949 Instructions.
