Subject:  where do i put expired options Date:  4/8/2002  2:57 AM

Last year I learned how silly it is to play with options and ended up letting a small amount of call options expire worthless.

I bought the calls in '00, but they expired in '01.

How do I treat this as a loss? Also, where do I note the loss on my return?
