Last year I sold all my shares in a stock I owned for a profit (I had the stock for less than a year) (I know, I know, not Foolish!) I have never owned stock before and have no idea where to enter the capital gains on my tax forms. I am single and normally would just fill out a 1040EZ (and 540EZ for CA) but realize now it will have to be a 1040A or 1040. Can someone give me some instruction??
Thanks!

You'll have to file Form 1040 for 2000. You'll show your stock sale on Schedule D. Read its instructions carefully, and let us know if you have any questions.
