Customer Question
Hi, my name is...

Hi, my name is ***** *****

Accountant's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I sold some vested class a stock last year to cover major home repairs. I noticed they are listed as 'non-covered' on my 1099-B. Im not sure what that means exactly, but I wanted to know if I will be expected to pay taxes on this sale?

I hold a JD (Juris Doctorate, a doctoral degree in the law), with concentration in Tax Law, Estate law & Corporate law, an MBA, with specialization in finance & tax, as well as CFP® and CRPS designations. - I’ve been providing financial & tax advice since 1986.

Hi, I can help here.

...

The box 6 "not covered" refers to whether the cost basis information on the sale was reported (covered) to the IRS as part of the 1099-B or not.

...

What this means is that you'll have to report the basis (form 8949, which flows to schedule D) to determine whether you have a gain on the sale of the stock or not.

...

Restricted stock becomes taxable upon the completion of the vesting schedule. So the value that was added to your income for tax purposes at that time is your basis, and the proceeds of sale reported on the 1099-B (together) determine whether you had a gain or loss on the sale

See this from IRS:

..

if the shareholder does not sell the stock at vesting and sells it at a later time, any difference between the sale price and the fair market value on the date of vesting is reported as a capital gain or loss.
