Each year we get questions from reps and tax preparers about how to handle transaction data for taxable accounts. While Flexible Plan does not provide tax advice, the following procedural information may be useful.
To avoid having to enter each buy/sell transaction, you can use one of the following methods:
- Trust Company of America (TCA) integrates with Turbo Tax, allowing you to download the data directly into the software program. TCA also provides the 1099-B tax data in CSV/spreadsheet format, which can be used with other software programs.
- Totals can be entered on Schedule D, and a hard copy of the 1099-B data can be submitted separately from the electronically filed return. Totals entered using this method could be labeled “Per schedule submitted with Form 8453.” You would then submit an IRS Form 8453 with the 1099-B tax data to the following address:
