Amended michigan tax return   You combine your share of short-term capital gain or loss from partnerships, S corporations, estates, and trusts, and any short-term capital loss carryover, with your other short-term capital gains and losses to figure your net short-term capital gain or loss on line 7 of Schedule D (Form 1040). Amended michigan tax return Long-term gains and losses. Amended michigan tax return    A capital gain or loss on the sale or trade of investment property held more than 1 year is a long-term capital gain or loss. Amended michigan tax return You report it in Part II of Form 8949. Amended michigan tax return   You report the following in Part II of Schedule D (Form 1040): Undistributed long-term capital gains from a mutual fund (or other regulated investment company) or real estate investment trust (REIT); Your share of long-term capital gains or losses from partnerships, S corporations, estates, and trusts; All capital gain distributions from mutual funds and REITs not reported directly on line 10 of Form 1040A or line 13 of Form 1040; and Long-term capital loss carryovers. Amended michigan tax return    The result after combining these items with your other long-term capital gains and losses is your net long-term capital gain or loss (Schedule D (Form 1040), line 15). Amended michigan tax return Total net gain or loss. Amended michigan tax return   To figure your total net gain or loss, combine your net short-term capital gain or loss (Schedule D (Form 1040), line 7) with your net long-term capital gain or loss (Schedule D (Form 1040), line 15). Amended michigan tax return Enter the result on Schedule D (Form 1040), Part III, line 16. Amended michigan tax return If your losses are more than your gains, see Capital Losses , next. Amended michigan tax return If both lines 15 and 16 of your Schedule D (Form 1040) are gains and your taxable income on your Form 1040 is more than zero, see Capital Gain Tax Rates , later. Amended michigan tax return Capital Losses If your capital losses are more than your capital gains, you can claim a capital loss deduction. Amended michigan tax return Report the amount of the deduction on line 13 of Form 1040, in parentheses. Amended michigan tax return Limit on deduction. Amended michigan tax return   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). Amended michigan tax return   You can use your total net loss to reduce your income dollar for dollar, up to the $3,000 limit. Amended michigan tax return Capital loss carryover. Amended michigan tax return   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. Amended michigan tax return If part of the loss is still unused, you can carry it over to later years until it is completely used up. Amended michigan tax return   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. Amended michigan tax return   When you carry over a loss, it remains long term or short term. Amended michigan tax return 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. Amended michigan tax return Figuring your carryover. Amended michigan tax return   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. Amended michigan tax return   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). Amended michigan tax return    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. Amended michigan tax return Example. Amended michigan tax return Bob and Gloria sold securities in 2013. Amended michigan tax return The sales resulted in a capital loss of $7,000. Amended michigan tax return They had no other capital transactions. Amended michigan tax return Their taxable income was $26,000. Amended michigan tax return On their joint 2013 return, they can deduct $3,000. Amended michigan tax return The unused part of the loss, $4,000 ($7,000 − $3,000), can be carried over to 2014. Amended michigan tax return If their capital loss had been $2,000, their capital loss deduction would have been $2,000. Amended michigan tax return They would have no carryover. Amended michigan tax return Use short-term losses first. Amended michigan tax return   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. Amended michigan tax return 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. Amended michigan tax return Decedent's capital loss. Amended michigan tax return    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. Amended michigan tax return The capital loss limits discussed earlier still apply in this situation.
