======It doesn't work quite like that, but close.We will assume you have no other stock transactions. In April 2002 you have to file taxes. You lost $10 a share on stock A. You can take up to $3000 in loss against your ordinary income. So you take the loss on A, and pay less taxes. You still own B. No taxes due. If you had more than $3000 in that $10 a share loss, the next year you can take another $3000 against ordinary income=======Thanks for the reply!.One more qs. Does ordinary income include salary paid by employer. Then since this comes with tax deducted at source, will I need to apply for a rebate while filing taxes ? Or tell my employer about the loss so he does the necessary tax adjustments ? Or carry it over to the next FY ?Thanks
