Wash sales are suppose to be disallowed, yet in TurboTax Deluxe 1099-B box 1g entries are subtracted from income total when they should be ignored

1099-B Box 1g Wash sale loss disallowed is incorrectly being included when income is totaled when it should be ignored.

 

A side by side comparison of TurboTax deluxe and HR block tax software turned up what I think is an error in how TurboTax totals income when there is a wash sale.  The wash sale is disallowed, yet TurboTax deluxe seems to subtract it from income.  Bug I think.

You have to enter your disallowed wash sale loss in the screen that says Are any of these less common items on your form 1099-B? It look like this:

 

 

That should result in the loss being disallowed on your tax return.
