Hi and welcome to Just Answer!
Please clarify where was your actual work location - in Virginia or in North Carolina?
North Carolina - and North Carolina taxes were withheld from my pay
let me verify...
Please see for reference – page 31 - http://www.dor.state.nc.us/practitioner/individual/bulletins/income_bulletins_09-10.pdf
3. Effect of Residency Status on Net Operating Losses
As stated earlier, the amount of net operating loss carried over and absorbed for federal tax purposes is also the amount carried over and deducted for State tax purposes. If the taxpayer is a nonresident or a part year resident in the year the net operating loss is incurred and a resident in the year to which the loss is carried, the taxpayer receives the full benefit of the deduction, regardless of whether the net operating loss resulted from North Carolina source activities.
While there is no clear indication – I assume that capital losses and net operating loss have same treatment – and you may claim $3000 carried over loss on your NC tax return as attributable to NC.
Please provide that information to your tax preparer for consideration.
You may confirm that deduction by calling NC DOR directly - 1-877-252-3052.
Let me know if you need any help or clarification.
