Filing taxes for 2012 Capital Losses If your capital losses are more than your capital gains, you can claim a capital loss deduction. Filing taxes for 2012 Report the amount of the deduction on line 13 of Form 1040, in parentheses. Filing taxes for 2012 Limit on deduction. Filing taxes for 2012   Your allowable capital loss deduction, figured on Schedule D (Form 1040), is the lesser of: $3,000 ($1,500 if you are married and file a separate return); or Your total net loss as shown on line 16 of Schedule D (Form 1040). Filing taxes for 2012   You can use your total net loss to reduce your income dollar for dollar, up to the $3,000 limit. Filing taxes for 2012 Capital loss carryover. Filing taxes for 2012   If you have a total net loss on line 16 of Schedule D (Form 1040) that is more than the yearly limit on capital loss deductions, you can carry over the unused part to the next year and treat it as if you had incurred it in that next year. Filing taxes for 2012 If part of the loss is still unused, you can carry it over to later years until it is completely used up. Filing taxes for 2012   When you figure the amount of any capital loss carryover to the next year, you must take the current year's allowable deduction into account, whether or not you claimed it and whether or not you filed a return for the current year. Filing taxes for 2012   When you carry over a loss, it remains long term or short term. Filing taxes for 2012 A long-term capital loss you carry over to the next tax year will reduce that year's long-term capital gains before it reduces that year's short-term capital gains. Filing taxes for 2012 Figuring your carryover. Filing taxes for 2012   The amount of your capital loss carryover is the amount of your total net loss that is more than the lesser of: Your allowable capital loss deduction for the year; or Your taxable income increased by your allowable capital loss deduction for the year and your deduction for personal exemptions. Filing taxes for 2012   If your deductions are more than your gross income for the tax year, use your negative taxable income in computing the amount in item (2). Filing taxes for 2012    Complete the Capital Loss Carryover Worksheet in the Instructions for Schedule D or Publication 550 to determine the part of your capital loss that you can carry over. Filing taxes for 2012 Example. Filing taxes for 2012 Bob and Gloria sold securities in 2013. Filing taxes for 2012 The sales resulted in a capital loss of $7,000. Filing taxes for 2012 They had no other capital transactions. Filing taxes for 2012 Their taxable income was $26,000. Filing taxes for 2012 On their joint 2013 return, they can deduct $3,000. Filing taxes for 2012 The unused part of the loss, $4,000 ($7,000 − $3,000), can be carried over to 2014. Filing taxes for 2012 If their capital loss had been $2,000, their capital loss deduction would have been $2,000. Filing taxes for 2012 They would have no carryover. Filing taxes for 2012 Use short-term losses first. Filing taxes for 2012   When you figure your capital loss carryover, use your short-term capital losses first, even if you incurred them after a long-term capital loss. Filing taxes for 2012 If you have not reached the limit on the capital loss deduction after using the short-term capital losses, use the long-term capital losses until you reach the limit. Filing taxes for 2012 Decedent's capital loss. Filing taxes for 2012    A capital loss sustained by a decedent during his or her last tax year (or carried over to that year from an earlier year) can be deducted only on the final income tax return filed for the decedent. Filing taxes for 2012 The capital loss limits discussed earlier still apply in this situation. Filing taxes for 2012 The decedent's estate cannot deduct any of the loss or carry it over to following years. Filing taxes for 2012 Joint and separate returns. Filing taxes for 2012   If you and your spouse once filed separate returns and are now filing a joint return, combine your separate capital loss carryovers. Filing taxes for 2012 However, if you and your spouse once filed a joint return and are now filing separate returns, any capital loss carryover from the joint return can be deducted only on the return of the spouse who actually had the loss. Filing taxes for 2012 Capital Gain Tax Rates The tax rates that apply to a net capital gain are generally lower than the tax rates that apply to other income. Filing taxes for 2012 These lower rates are called the maximum capital gain rates. Filing taxes for 2012 The term “net capital gain” means the amount by which your net long-term capital gain for the year is more than your net short-term capital loss. Filing taxes for 2012 For 2013, the maximum capital gain rates are 0%, 15%, 20%, 25%, and 28%. Filing taxes for 2012 See Table 16-1 for details. Filing taxes for 2012 If you figure your tax using the maximum capital gain rate and the regular tax computation results in a lower tax, the regular tax computation applies. Filing taxes for 2012 Example. Filing taxes for 2012 All of your net capital gain is from selling collectibles, so the capital gain rate would be 28%. Filing taxes for 2012 If you are otherwise subject to a rate lower than 28%, the 28% rate does not apply. Filing taxes for 2012 Investment interest deducted. Filing taxes for 2012   If you claim a deduction for investment interest, you may have to reduce the amount of your net capital gain that is eligible for the capital gain tax rates. Filing taxes for 2012 Reduce it by the amount of the net capital gain you choose to include in investment income when figuring the limit on your investment interest deduction. Filing taxes for 2012 This is done on the Schedule D Tax Worksheet or the Qualified Dividends and Capital Gain Tax Worksheet. Filing taxes for 2012 For more information about the limit on investment interest, see Interest Expenses in chapter 3 of Publication 550. Filing taxes for 2012 Table 16-1.
