Wash Sales – If you sold a stock or security at a loss, but re-purchased within 30 days the same or substantially the same security, the Worksheet identifies the sale using code “WS” (Disallowed loss from wash sale).
Social Security Number – For security purposes, the first 5 digits of the tax identification number have been removed.
Tax Basis Declaration – Two new tax basis methods, made available January 2009, help identify gain/loss methods for trades. The optional methods Last In, First Out (LIFO) and Maximize Losses (ML) join the default First In, First Out (FIFO) on the Worksheet.
