IRS delays basis reporting for bonds and options

The IRS is giving brokers extra time to start reporting the basis in debt instruments and options. This requirement had been scheduled to go into effect on January 1, 2013, but brokers and other involved parties complained to the IRS that this did not give them enough time to build and test the systems required to meet this obligation. The IRS has extended the deadline to January 1, 2014. This reporting requirement was the third phase of investment basis reporting included in a 2008 tax law.
