When carrying over a long-term capital loss on schedule D,

Resolved Question:

When carrying over a long-term capital loss on schedule D, do I enter the carry over amount on line 14 or do I have to fill in line 8 the same as the previous year showing the description of the property?

Thanks for your question.


You would just enter the carryover amount on line 14. You would not put anything in line 8 for the carryover. The description is not needed.


Hope this helps,
