My accountant suggested to me that I can defer capital gains on a stock in which I received a 2 for 1 stock split by selling half and declaring a loss by retaining the original cost basis. He said when I sell the balance in a different year I would then have to pay the entire gain. This did not sound correct to me. Do I need to find another accountant or is he correct? Anyone?
