I have a capital gains loss carryover (Schedule D) of $408000

Customer Question
for 2009. I have gains...
I have a capital gains loss carryover (Schedule D) of $408000 for 2009. I have gains in years 2007 and 2006. 2008 is even. Can this loss be carried back to 2007, 2006 and refiled to recoup some of these tax dollars paid, or, has new legislation been accepted that would not allow me to do this? I would very much like to get some of these monies back if possible. I do not know how to make it clearer what I would like to do. Thank you.

RD :

Hi

RD :

Thank you for using Justanswer.

RD :

Capital losses cannot be carried back. These losses will be claimed against capital gains for the current year and any excess loss will offset upto $3000 of your other income. Balance loss will be carried forward for offset in future.

RD :

Corporations follow a different rule. Corporations with capital losses must first be carried back to each of the three preceding years, if possible. Any capital losses that cannot be applied against capital gains from the three previous years can then be applied against capital gains in the 5 succeeding tax years.

RD :

Let me know if you have any question.
