I had a Long Term Loss Carry Over from 2001. How much is left?
« on: September 17, 2018, 01:49:12 PM »
I'm trying figure out how much Long Term Loss Carry Over I have left.
Looking at my 2017 Schedule D
Part 1,
line 7, Short term gain $13,869.

Part 2,
line 8h, ($4,692)
Line 13h $835
Line 14h ($23,792)
Line 15h ($27,649)

Part 3
Line 16 ($13,780)
Line 21 ($3,000)

So is my left over 'Long Term Carry Over', Line 15h - Line 21 = $24,649?

Can I sell VTSAX taking a LTCG and use up that $24,649 on my 2018 1040.

To MDM, is a carry over loss included in the CSS?

The long term carry over has to add any short term gain so you don't double count.  The Capital Loss Carryover Worksheet in the Schedule D instructions will help you do the math officially.

I believe you will end up with Line 15 + line 7 - line 21 = A long term loss of $10,780 is unused.

If you have any gains this year, it will consume the losses, since the carryovers are in the math "above" line 16.

Yes, see the Schedule D section starting in cell L53.

  Oh whew, I went through the process and came up with the same answer $10,780.
Disappointing, I used up over $16,000 of my carryover loss last year.
I guess I'll use the rest this year. That was a long haul, took me 17 years to use up 2001 carryover losses.

I do have one discrepancy, Line 13 on the carryover worksheet is $24,116
 but when it was transferred to line 14 of the schedule D it is $23,792.
 Are there any subtractions I'm missing? I thinks it's an error!
