If the Gains and Losses Report doesn't show any wash sale entries:
- Confirm that you have checked the Adjust for Wash Sales box prior to running the report.
- Confirm that your data file has the correct Current Tax Year value in the file name. For example, if you want to reconcile 2020 trades in a new data file, when creating the data file you should enter a current tax year of "2020", then import 2020 trades. If you were to enter a tax year of "2019" when creating the file, then import 2020 trades and attempt to run a Gains and Losses Report complete with wash sale adjustments for 2020, the report would not contain any trade details or wash sale entries.
- Confirm that you have imported all trades for the current year and all trades executed in January of the following year.
Your trading may not have generated any wash sales.
