I was forced by broker (reg SHO 204 buy-in) to square off (buy-in) on short sale transactions (several on one single 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.
