Recently we received a statement from the executor of a will for a deceased family member. It stated there was a capital loss carry over and they provided a fidicuary form 1041 K-1 worksheet dated fiscal year May 2, 2002 to April 30, 2003. This was issued to my wife (we married 03/2003).

Can anyone tell me what forms I need to file. The long term capital loss is $8546, which probably means I have to restate a few years of income... I am looking for some guidance on what I need to restate, and how I restate it.

My guess is I find a 2002 addendum form, add $3000 capital loss to the worksheet. Find a 2003 form, add $3000 capital loss to the worksheet, in 2004 add $2546 to the original filing. Would this be correct?

And does this happen often?

Thanks a bunch,

- ardent
