they are not reported to the government by thebroker. if you state them on your tax returnthey are handled as capital gains or losses
correction: when you state them on your tax return. If you write options, premiums are taxable. Tax cost basis is adjusted. some good tax helps on options. simply put in something like "tax" and "options" etc. on Google. Suggest Turbo Tax
I heard options are not taxed, but the guy who told me ain't no Einstein.
