Hi Ira,

It's being phased in over three years:

For stocks, it affects securities purchased starting in 2011.  For mutual funds and DRIP's it starts in 2012.

Note also that the due date for form 1099-B moves to Feb 15th.  That later date also applies to form 1099 in general when form 1099-B and other 1099 items are reported together on a consolidated statement.

Yes.  Even if you don't sell any securities within the year,  the broker can delay the issuance of the consolidated 1099 until Feb. 15.  So that's the date your investment clubs should focus on going forward.
