I have to sell a stock at a long term loss. I am in the 15% tax bracket. How long do I have to wait to rebuy the stock? Also is my income deducted dollar for dollar on my taxes if I have no capital gains to report? Also am I only allowed to report $3000 in losses per year and then carry over the rest to 2013 taxes? I will be taking a $6000-$7000 dollar loss on my investment. Thank you.
