How to report a wash sale in Lacerte

SOLVEDby IntuitLacerte Tax28Updated September 20, 2021

Follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Dispositions screen:
    • Individual module: Screen 17
    • Partnership module: Screen 19
    • Corporate module: Screen 15
    • S Corporate module: Screen 23
    • Fiduciary module: Screen 22
    • Exempt module: Screen 24
  2. Enter the applicable information regarding the sale (Description of property, Date acquired, Date sold, Sales price, Cost or other basis).
  3. Scroll down to the Schedule D section.
  4. Enter Wash sale amount disallowed (-1 to disallow all) (code 101).

The amounts flow to Form 8949 with the nondeductible loss as a positive amount in column g, and a disposition code W in column f.

The wash portion of an entered transaction is the amount of loss being excluded. The amount entered will be treated as a gain.
