Thank you for using Just Answer.

At least for Federal purposes, the capital loss (what you refer to as stock transactions) and rental loss are independent, so you could separately take the $3,000 capital loss and up to $25,000 rental loss independently.

The most likely other passive gain/loss you might have is from limited partnerships.

As for the 2008 addition, you'd have to report the adjustment reason(s) given by the IRS to determine whether it's plausible or what might be done in order to claim a current or future deduction.

I should add that you must report any Federal adjustment which affects your Illinois taxes to Illinois within 6 months, or the statute of limitations on reassessment of your 2008 state taxes may be unlimited.
