Title: Basis Reporting by Securities Brokers 
Abstract: This action proposes new and amended regulations under 26 CFR part 1 to provide guidance regarding the requirement that brokers begin reporting the basis of securities sold by customers on Form 1099-B. The requirement for basis reporting was added by section 403 of the Energy Improvement and Extension Act of 2008 enacted on October 3, 2008. The Act also amended section 1012 to provide new rules for determining the basis of certain securities subject to the new reporting requirements. The new reporting requirements and basis rules generally begin to take effect on January 1, 2011.
