Comment on Tax loss harvesting opportunity - FY 2017/18

Varughese commented on 25 Jun 2018, 11:47 AM

I had bought 20 OIL shares in FY 2014-15 and sold 26 OIL shares in FY 2017-18 at a loss. I had received 6 bonus shares in 2017.
Zerodha tax reports is showing the 6 shares as short term capital gains with a buy value of zero. Please advise whether this is correct or whether the system was unable to account for bonus.
Should I show 26 Long Term Shares while filing my Tax?
