Tax Reporting: Does IBKR offer a Gain/Loss Worksheet?

Yes.  At calendar year-end, IBKR provides a Gain/Loss Summary Worksheet showing trade gain and loss detail for all securities (stocks, options, single stock futures and bonds) for the year. The summary worksheet is available by logging in to Client Portal and accessing the Reports > Tax menu. 

Transactions are split into two parts: Short-Term Capital Gains and Losses, and Long-Term Capital Gains and Losses.  All attempts have been made to tie total proceeds shown on this worksheet to your Form 1099-B total proceeds, however discrepancies may exist.  Proceeds are reported net of all commissions.  Gains and losses are calculated using First In, First Out (FIFO), Last In, Last Out (LIFO) or a Maximize Losses (ML) methodology, whichever method has been selected by the user for a particular trade.

We suggest that you review this summary worksheet carefully and verify its contents.  Please consult your tax advisor if you have any questions regarding tax reporting.
