1099-B Confusion and Adjustment Codes

When filling out the 1099-B info on TurboTax, I chose to enter in a summary since I have a lot of transactions.  However, I'm having trouble as to how I should fill out the rest of the information.  My 1099-B looks as follows:

  • [1d]    Proceeds                                        $29000.00
  • [1e]    Cost or other Basis                       $30000.00
  • [N/A] Total Gain/(Loss)                           ($500)
  • [1g]    Wash Sale Loss Disallowed        $7.00

After filling out the easy stuff in TurboTax, I checked the box where I need to enter "amounts from box 1f, box 1g, or other adjustments".  It brought down the following boxes:

  • Total adjustments to gain or (loss)   ___________
  • List all adjustment codes                   ___________

Do I just add the [N/A Total Gain/(Loss)] and the [1g] box together [so $-500 + $7] to get the Total adjustments to gain or (loss)?  For the adjustment codes, I think I use an 'M' since it is a summary and a 'W' since I'm also including a Wash Sale.  Would someone be able to please clear this up for me?  Thanks in advance!

No, when you enter summary information TurboTax figures the amount of Gain/Loss.  The only adjustment you enter is the $7 for the Wash Sale and the Code is W.

That's great that you know that code is a W!!  On my Edward Jones statement, there are no codes that I can find.  So do they use W for wash, G for gross proceeds, C for cost basis?  Where do you find the hidden codes?
