TradeLog automatically defines mutual fund securities based on ticker symbol and classifies the security type/multiplier as MUT-1. TradeLog also allows a user to customize the list of defined mutual fund securities in Global Options. Some tax reporting requires certain types of securities to be reported separately, or in a special manner. See our online Tax Topic: Understanding IRS Form 8949 Categories)
