Reporting Wash Sales on Form 8949

Can you dispute a wash sale?

How do you get around the 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.

How does IRS know about wash sales?

IRS regulations require only that Schwab track and report wash sales on the same CUSIP number (a unique nine-character identifier for a security) within the same account.

Do you report wash sale disallowed?

A wash sale itself is not illegal. Claiming the tax loss on a wash sale is, however, illegal. The IRS does not care how many wash sales an investor makes during the year. On the other hand, it will disallow the losses on any sales made within 30 days before or after the purchase.
