Before acting on this, I'd confirm the tax question with the IRS instructions, but it seems you'll need to consider several factors:1. Is the stock likely to increase/decrease in value between now and then?2. Will the short term tax have a relatively better impact on this year's income than the long term tax would have on next year's projected income?As I understand it, the short term capital losses may be applied against long term capital gains and the excess applied against income, up to a maximum of $3,000, after which it can be carried over to the following year. You'll definitely want to get the details on this, though!
