Post: Filing status and capital gains/losses
Posted by Chris Richard on 1/09/10
I have capital losses for tax year 2009, which are large
enough to carryover to tax year 2010 and beyond.
If I file married jointly for 2009 and use the $3,000 limit
for this status, can I then file married filing separately
for tax year 2010 and continue to report my carryover losses
but at the $1,500 limit?
Basically, if I file using a specific filing status must I
use that same filing status until I have written off all my
capital losses on schedule D each year?
