I have a couple tax questions if somebody could help me out. 1st - How do you handle the gain from making money on a stock that was shorted? Should I treat it as if I bought it and didn't short it? Is there any special rules? 2nd - What is the tax schedule I need to get for debit interest - money I paid to borrow on margin - so I can get credit for it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,
