Sorry if this has been covered many times before, I thought the quickest way to an answer was to simply ask. When taking a long term loss on a stock, held for one year and one day, what are the factors in determining how much of the loss can be recouped by claiming it as a long term loss on next year's taxes? Is it feasible to " break even " on stock that lost money? TIA EDNMKN.
