Covered - noncovered securities is relatively new concept. Both are reported and treated the same way for tax purposes, the only difference is that with covered securities your basis (purchase price, fees) are reported on 1099. With noncovered securities you will have to use your own records to figure out your basis. Basis reduce the sales proceeds so only the difference between the sales proceeds and your basis is reported as taxable.
