1099B & Schedule D

Terry D EA

Recommended Posts

I think I did this last year but can't clearly remember. I have a client that just showed up with a 1099B that has about 20 pages of short term and long term barter exchanges. Are we permitted to attached the broker's statement to the return and make reference to it with the e-file or does this have to be itemized out on form 8949? I sure would like to attach the statement as this would be one headache off my desk.

Just to let you know;

My personal return had about 50 pages (5 mutual funds...over 10 years)...and it just ran on and on...with one line summarizing at the end.

Scanning and attaching wasn't going to happen........

I called IRS...and the rep I spoke to said to just use "that one line"...and if the IRS wanted to, they'd contact and ask for the backup. He said as long as "the numbers match, it should be fine".

That's what I've been doing on every return that has "too many transactions"........
