Wash Sales involving different Accounts


Although it is not desirable, sometimes one has to sell shares in one account at a loss and buy them back in another within 30 days. Even if the accounts belong to the same brokerage the wash sale will not be tracked by the brokerage or reported in year-end reports sent to the IRS, as I recently learned.

How to make the adjustments required for recognizing the wash sale?

Is there a software to identify wash sales involving different accounts if missed at the time of the sale?
