  • BATS update: We were informed yesterday that a glitch in the exchange agreement submission process had been identified by the technicians at QuoteMedia and that they put a fix in place around 6 pm ET. However, based on numerous complaints received since then, it is obvious to us that their solution is not working as intended. We have relayed this information to their tech team and will work with them to get this resolved as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience. Until we get a more reliable solution from them, we suggest you simply disregard the "unsigned agreements" notices and not waste time attempting to fill them out and resubmit them. We will let you know when QuoteMedia's technicians have confirmed that they have a workable solution.

Re: Computing Capital Gains in MLP

from pshonore on MLP bd:

OK Guys - one more time.

Take your original purchase price and add the basis adjustment to it. Since the basis adjustment is
usually negative, this will lower your basis. Take your sale proceeds and subtract your adjusted
basis you just calculated to get total gain. The MLP has told you the amount of ordinary gain so
subtract that from total gain to get cap gain/loss. The ordinary gain goes on Form 4797 Part 2.
The Cap gain /loss goes on Form 8949. All this is on the Sales Schedule supplied with your K1,
including the above instructions.

If your using TT, tell it you made a complete dispospositon of the MLP. On the resulting form
enter the sale proceeds, adjusted basis, sale and purchase dates and amount of Ordinary gain.
TT will do the rest. Check form 4797 and Form 8949 for accuracy and aslo check that any
previously unallowed losses show up on Schedule E.
