only have 'capital losses' this year-novice at thisI know there are people who disagree with me on this point, but I think the Schedule D is a difficult form to complete. It's tedious, with lots of opportunities for entry errors and math errors.I recommend you choose one of the tax prep software packages to help you complete your return. The packages will help you to avoid most of the more obvious errors. I have an emotional attachment to Turbo Tax, but all the packages are good.Additionally, you mentioned the Schedule D is new to you. The tax code is voluminous, complicated, and labyrinthine. Doing your own taxes when all you have is W-2s and a standard deduction is one thing. I think any time taxpayers enter new areas of the tax code, they should consult a tax professional. In many cases taxpayers will earn back the tax professional's fees in taxes they won't overpay or aggravation they won't have.David JacobsTMFDj111
