Thank you very much Peter and Phil for your responses to my post:<<< had a client who had an uncle who died. He had a K-1 from the trust. In box 11 (final year deductions long-term capital loss carryover) there was $ 12,000. I don't understand this. I thought when someone died, capital loss carryovers died with them. I thought not even spouses were able to take capital loss carryovers (unless jointly owned). Why is this even a possibility. I admit I don't know much about estates, trusts, corporate, etc. just individuals.>>>>If I understand what you are saying, as an example: If the uncle had purchased some stock for $ 30,000 2 years before he died, and on the date of death it was worth $ 20,000, but was sold 6 months later for $ 15,000 while the estate was being settled, there would be a long term loss carryover that would pass through. I assume it would be for $ 5,000 though, right? I can't imagine they would let the whole $ 15,000 carryover. Then again I know reason, logic and fairness don't have a lot to do with taxes. Just trying to fully understand how this works.Norm
