See, that's what I don't understand. If, as in my examples, my gains are $30,000

I probably shouldn't be working the boards, because I'm tired and cranky, but would you please stop what-iffing and answer my question? We'd really like to help, but right now you're asking for confirmation of what your accountant has told you, but you won't tell us exactly what he told you and what your numbers are so we can verify or rebut.

So, please tell us

1. What your capital loss carryover from 1999 is;

2. What your year 2000 realized capital gains and losses are;

3. What stock transactions you're contemplating (e.g. a sale for a long-term loss of $5,000);

4. What you asked your accountant; and

5. What he told you.
