A new Form 8949, Sales and Other Dispositions of Capital Assets, contains all capital gain and loss transactions.

The subtotals from Form 8949 are carried over to Schedule D, where gain or loss is calculated in aggregate. Short and long-term transactions are listed by these categories:
A checkbox in Part I and Part II identifies the type of transaction reported. Only one box may be checked in each Part; taxpayers with more than one type of transaction must file a separate Form 8949 for each type of transaction. For more information, see Income - Capital Gain or Loss.
