8949 - Code on Part I or II



How can I change my entry on Form 8949, Sales and Other Dispositions of Capital Assets, from code A to code B?

 

Open the 8949 screen (on the Income tab). Select the appropriate designation from the drop list for the field Applicable check box on Form 8949:

Codes A, B, and C relate to short-term transactions. Codes D, E, and F relate to long-term transactions.

If selecting the code under Other 8949 Information does not work, check the dates of acquisition and sale/exchange on the 8949 screen (lines 1b and 1c). Also review line 2 to be sure the term of the transaction is correct.

Lines from the 8949 flow to Schedule D, Capital Gains and Losses.
