We had several sales of fractional shares in 2023. Half of them were over $20, the other half under $10. I read in another thread that, "The broker is required to send you a 1099-B if the gross proceed is at least $20." So I feel it is a safe assumption that that's why I have only received statements for the first half. My question is: Can I just manually enter the other half of them, based on my own records? Or am I required to do so? (They're losses, for what it is worth.)
You can either wait longer to see if they generate a 1099-B, or you can file your taxes (and report the sales accurately according to your records.) If you do file now, and a 1099 is later generated that does not match your records, you can amend your filing later if you realize the 1099 is more correct than your initial filing.
