capital loss from stock

Post by ketanco » Fri Aug 10, 2018 5:23 am

i own only 1 stock now and if i sell it it will be at a loss of about 2000$. when i do my taxes for 2018 next year, do i have to enter this loss amount, or can i do it in another year later? so is it at our option to show a loss from a stock later? because this year my income may be low and it may be better to include this loss in a later year when my income is higher

Assuming this is in a taxable account as well.

Maybe CULater will read this and ask you for some stock advice since they wanted a $200 loss.
