is there a minimum amount of time you must sell and then be out of a stock before buying it back in order for the IRS to allow you to report it as a (short term) capital loss on schedule D ?If you buy the same stock within 30 days before or after a sale for a loss, you cannot recognize the loss, but have to add it to your basis of the "replacement" stock.* I sold and rebought 4 positions last Dec to generate sell records showing some losses for the year, can I use them ? Probably not. "Paper" losses are the reason the wash sale rule exists. See Publication 550.Phil MartiVITA Volunteer
