Form 8949 Report

Form 8949 – Starting with the 2011 tax year, investment transactions will be reported on the new Form 8949, Sales and Other Dispositions of Capital Assets.

  1. The sale or exchange of a capital asset (defined below) not reported on another form or schedule,
  2. Gains from involuntary conversions (other than from casualty or theft) of capital assets not held for business or profit, and
  3. Nonbusiness bad debts.

The IRS has created a page on IRS.gov for information about Form 8949 and Schedule D at www.irs.gov/form8949. Information about any tax law changes or other new developments affecting Schedule D or Form 8949 will be posted on that page. Form 8949 is new. Many transactions that, in previous years, would have been reported on Schedule D or D-1 must be reported on Form 8949 if they occur in 2011. Complete all necessary pages of Form 8949 before completing line 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, or 10 of Schedule D. Instructions for how to complete Form 8949 are included in these instructions.
