in the original post he stated he had more than $3000 in short term losses.

Dead on...So many thanks Ira....I went back to look through TT and I realize what threw me.....

When filling out the Schedule D, there is a pop up that says "You don't need to print your return now as you will have time to do that in a few screens...".

That's all fine and good, but then you better find the link to print for review before it leads you into 'Filing'....and like a real fool, I missed it....

I'll give'r a week and then do my first ever amended return (age 52)'d think by now I'd know more about taxes than I do..then again, you'd think I'd know more about investing than I do...

Again, I appreciate your advice...
