This is not a response to your question but a question since you seem to be well versed with was sales.

I was forced by broker (reg SHO 204 buy-in) to square off (buy-in) on short sales transactions (several on one day) on a stock.  The buy-in was done by me (broker threatened to square off in 8 hours time) in 4 separate transactions.

Now the broker is reporting wash sale on 1099.  To me, since this was forced on me, wash sale cannot apply.  Any feedback greatly appreciated.
