How do I enter multiple stock sales

I have numerous stock trades of the same stock. Can I add them all together as long as I sold out the position in the same calender year?

    No.  While you can combine multiple PURCHASES of a stock when listing out a sale of that stock, it doesn't work the other way around.  Each SALE has to be listed out on Form 8949.

    If you have some sort of Excel spreadsheet or broker's report that reports all the information required on the Form 8949 and separated into long term and short term holdings (totaled) then, in Turbo Tax you can select the "Investment Type" of "Other" -- Attach a statement" (one for long term holdings and one for short term holdings) and mail in your attached statement with your return or with Form 8453 if you file electronically.

      Most brokers let you download transaction data in XLS or CSV spreadsheet format.  If you have the data in Excel, for less than 25 rows, you can use my tool for free.

        People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

        1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
        2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
        3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
        4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
        5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
