I went back and looked at last year. If I hadn't put in the capital loss my taxable income would have been only %59 more than with it. The only reason I bothered to file the Sched D was in case in future years the carry over loss might have benefited me. I'll certainly omit it in future years, of course. Right now I don't have the energy to amend for a possible $8 change in taxes. Maybe next tax season.


Thank all!
