Taxes have been pretty much straight forward for me over the years. The only exceptions being in itemized deductions.
This year a 1041 K-1 form brought a wonderful deduction and a Long Term Capital Loss Carryover figure with scant instructions. The more I researched it the less I knew about it.
I just had to lock down and roll the numbers knowing I followed instructions to the T on schedule D.
I don’t know what I did but I’ve got a paper trail and I know how to use it!
