We received a CP2501 letter saying that the IRS received 7 1099-B
reports that were not included on our 2006 return.

The problem is that all 7 stock/mutual fund sales that they are
questioning _were_ included on our return in exactly the same amounts
that they are questioning.

Some of the entries on our return were a single line entry, some were
mutual funds with reinvested dividends that were split between long and
short term, and some were multiple entries using the FIFO method. In
all cases the total sales amount matches the amount reported on the
1099-B.

There were also many other sales in 2006 that we reported on the same
schedule D that the IRS is not questioning.

We did efile using TurboTax. It is almost like the IRS didn't receive
all of our Schedule D data -- is that possible???

How should I handle this? Attach a copy of our Schedule D and ask them
to look again?

That's what to do, yes. Also make copies of mutual fund 1099b and make
notes as to how to reconcile with the schedule D filed.

If the items listed on the notice were properly reported as you
stated, perhaps there is something else that just isn't matching up
correctly. Also check the sum of your 1099B's, 1099DIV's &
1099INT's. Compare these numbers to the amounts reported on the IRS
notice.

That seems to me to be one of those computer generated matching
notices.
You have to go through it in detail to be certain what it is really
looking for.
Calling the number on the notice should shed some light on the
situation.

Yes, it seems to be computer generated.

I have done that, but nothing stands out.

I tried that. The "call for assistance" number given (1-800-829-3009)
seems to be nothing more than a canned, (push 3 to hear...) FAQ. I
didn't find any way to actually talk to a human - in other words - a
useless waste of time.
