Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
Stocks you sold in 2014 have to be reported on your 2014 return and stocks sold in 2015 have to be reported on your 2015 return. You don't report gain/loss until you dispose/sell the stock so your unrealized loss is irrelevant for tax purposes until you sell it and the loss becomes realized. Unfortunately there's no provision for differing capital gains. Disposition of capital assets, including investments have t be reported in the year of disposition or sell.
Sorry if that's not answer you were hopping for.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Yes, but there were some major changes to the law in summer of 2014 I am not familiar with. So let me opt out, maybe another expert will be able to help.
