Unable to select "Blank" for box 1b on 1099-B. The form has no information in boxes 1a through 1f but TurboTax will not accept "Blank" for 1b. What do I do?

No Date Acquired is shown on 1099-B. What do I do?

You have to find out the date.  Or if you bought it several times type Various.   But you have to know if you held it Long Term or Short Term.  If it is a combination of both you need to split the sale into 2 sales,  LongTerm and Short Term.

And you need all the other info too.  If nothing is on the form why are you entering a sale?
