A friend bounced this question off me the other day and I don't know the answer. I asked TMFSelena and she was stumped as well.Let's say I short a company 1000 shares @ $10/share. I now have roughly $10,000. The company hits hard times and ends up in Chapter 7 bankruptcy....the stock goes to $0.Do I have to ever cover? What's the price? If I don't cover when do I recognize the income for tax purposes?Anyone out there know the rules on this?
