Capital Gains & Losses
Why Don'T My Option Sales Appear On Form 1099 ?
The IRS does not require that brokerage firms report options sales on form 1099-B. The IRS does require brokerage firms to report the assignment or exercise of options if cash is received as a result of the assignment or exercise.
