Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
Unless you file the return and claim the losses, the IRS and the CA FTB has no way of knowing how much you invested. Only the proceeds had been reported to them so unless you file your return, they will assume it is all taxable.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
