What is a gain on a wash sale?

Key Takeaways

The IRS' wash sale rule prevents an investor from purchasing the same securities they sold (or substantially similar ones) within a 30-day period before or after the sale. If you violate the wash sale rule, you won't be able to write off the capital loss on that security on your taxes that year.

Is it a wash sale if you sell for profit?

The Internal Revenue Service says a "wash sale" typically occurs when you sell or trade stock or other securities at a loss—and within 30 days before or after the sale, you buy the same stock or "substantially identical" securities.

How do I bypass wash sale rule?

If you own an individual stock that experienced a loss, you can avoid a wash sale by making an additional purchase of the stock and then waiting 31 days to sell those shares that have a loss.

Can I sell a stock for a gain and buy it back?

Stock Sold for a Profit

You can buy the shares back the next day if you want and it will not change the tax consequences of selling the shares. An investor can always sell stocks and buy them back at any time. The 60-day waiting period is imposed by the tax rules and only applies to stocks sold for a loss.

Can I sell a stock and buy it back within 30 days?

You can't sell a stock or mutual fund at a loss and then buy it again it within 30 days just to claim the losses. You'll need to figure the basis for shares sold in a wash sale.

Can I sell a stock and buy it back the same day?

There are no restrictions on placing multiple buy orders to buy the same stock more than once in a day, and you can place multiple sell orders to sell the same stock in a single day. The FINRA restrictions only apply to buying and selling the same stock within the designated five-trading-day period.

How long do I have to wait to buy a stock after selling it?

Again, the rule applies to a 30-day period before and after the sale date to prevent your buying the stock "back" before it's even sold.

Do you actually lose money on a wash sale?

The wash-sale rule prohibits selling an investment for a loss and replacing it with the same or a "substantially identical" investment 30 days before or after the sale. If you do have a wash sale, the IRS will not allow you to write off the investment loss which could make your taxes for the year higher than you hoped.

Is it a wash sale if you sell entire position?

A wash sale is when you sell an asset, such as a stock or bond, for a loss but have purchased the same asset or a very similar one within 30 days before or after the sale. A wash sale makes it appear as if you have sold your position and disowned the property, though you really haven't.

How does IRS detect wash sale?

The IRS has ruled (Rev. Rul. 2008-5) that when an individual sells a security at a loss and then repurchases that security in their (or their spouses') IRA within 30 days before or after the sale, that loss will be subject to the wash-sale rules.

Does the wash sale rule hurt you?

Wash sales triggered by IRA trades are always harmful. The IRS has special rules for IRA trades which trigger a wash sale in a taxable account. Rather than deferring the loss to a future date, the IRS says the loss is permanently disallowed.

Is it a wash sale if you buy back at a higher price?

A wash sale is when you sell an investment and then turn around and repurchase the asset or one similar to it, often at a similar price. This is the investing equivalent of the saying “it's a wash” because the sale and repurchase effectively has no impact on your portfolio composition or performance.

Does TurboTax calculate wash sales?

Yes, if the wash sales are entered correctly TurboTax will calculate then correctly.

Is wash sale rule 30 or 60 days?

The Wash-Sale Rule states that, if an investment is sold at a loss and then repurchased within 30 days, the initial loss cannot be claimed for tax purposes. In order to comply with the Wash-Sale Rule, investors must therefore wait at least 31 days before repurchasing the same investment.
