With the significant increases in stock market values over the past few years, many taxpayers may experience a variety of income and gains to report. Although the consolidated Form 1099 is not new, there are multiple places on the form that report income and expenses. Some of which can be confusing. When is Form 8949 required and when can everything be reported on Schedule D? When must each transaction be listed separately on the Form 8949 and when can a summary be attached? When is a Form 6781 required and how is that income taxed?
Many tax professionals rarely deal with some investment-related activities such as reporting the sale of employer securities (ESOPs), and earnings on savings bonds. Although these activities are uncommon, it is important to know what to do when your client has these situations.
By attending this webinar, you will know what to look for and where to report it.
