The easist way for investment ‘traders’ to report transaction gains and losses to the IRS

According to the instructions for Schedule D (page 6), instead of entering the details of each transaction separately on Schedule D or D-1, you can attach a statement containing all of the same information as Schedules D and D-1 as long as it is in a similar format. The combined totals are entered on lines 2 and 9 of Schedule D. Use as many statements as necessary. Do not write “available upon request” along with the summary totals instead of reporting the details of each transaction, that is a red flag for an audit. So yes if your brokerage firm provides you a detailed report of your transactions for the year that should be reported on the schedule ‘D’ under capital gains/losses you can attach that report to the schedule ‘D’ and enter the totals on lines 2 and 9.
