Will turbo tax be able to handle multiple 1099-B from two or more brokerage firms ? Is Wash sale issues handled by the software and also if a stock is traded from both brokerages, will any losses/gains be collated after imports. Thanks for providing any clarifications on the scenario.
Yes, TurboTax Premier can account for multiple 1099-Bs from various firms. All gains and losses for passive activities are netted properly. Wash sales are supported, unless they are related to employer stock sales.
While the software handles all common transactions, there are a few situations reported on form 1099-B that cannot be accounted for. These include:
- Nominee distributions
- When Box 2b of Form 1099-B is checked, from a reportable change in control or capital structure reported in Box 2a of that form.
calculation of a disallowed wash sale loss adjustment on Form 8949 when employer stock is sold.
Employer stock is stock acquired through various employer-sponsored plans, such as an Employee
Stock Purchase Plan, an Incentive Stock Option Plan, a Restricted Stock Plan, or a Restricted Stock
The following contracts can be entered manually, but are not supported for import: Regulated Futures Contracts, Foreign Currency Contracts and Section 1256 Option Contracts.
No 1040 tax software will correlate trades of the same security at different brokers that result in wash sales.
That will be your responsibility.
In general, for your own sanity, don't do that.
