Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello! I am a CPA here to assist you with your tax questions. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
How are you today?
To track your profits, you would keep track of what you sold each card for,
and then subtract what you paid for the card from that amount
For your comic book collection this is a personal asset and you do not deduct losses of personal use assets
How you figure what you paid is you take the entire purchase price and divide by the number of estimated cards you have
so there is no reporting requirement, unless you sell one for a couple hundred bucks each, then you would report the sale of that one on schedule D
You can deduct the losses of the cards because they are an investment.
Thank you very much! You've been a big help!
Okay you can try again
