I paid out $500 of dividends for a stock I held short before I closed the position this tax year.
I understand I can add this $500 to my basis (my cost to purchase/cover). To do this I must override the imported gain/loss info I received from my broker. When I do this TurboTax throws an error and tells me that the override isn't supported for electronic filing.
Am I missing something here? How do I record my investment costs for dividends paid out on a stock short sale.
