My daughter has an interesting problem. She graduated from college in 2009, so her college trust had taken a hit and she has (stock) capital losses to carry forward. But in 2010, she was a volunteer in Namibia (World Teach). She does not need to file taxes for 2010. Can she simply carry over her capital losses to 2011 without filing?
