Wash Sale Rule


Last Update 2 years ago

Understanding Wash Sale

Wash sale doesn't allow investors to book capital loss for tax purposes if the same or similar security is bought in any account (including spouse if filing jointly) within 30 days.

Important: This rule is different for investors filing taxes with mark-to-market accounting.

For more details and examples, please refer to the following:


For TD Ameritrade broker, you can find Profit/Loss report with and without wash sale under cost basis (last tab) on the website.
