To avoid wash-sale rule after the sale of a stock for a loss I can't buy the same stock within +/- 30 days of sale for a loss. What happens if I sold the stock for a loss and then, 2 weeks later, was assigned the same stock on a put I sold long ago? The expiration date on a put is more than a month later. Does IRS consider a put assignment the same as a buy? I hope not.
