Capital losses

When you sell a security for less than you paid for it (for less than its cost basis), the difference is a realized capital loss. If you incur losses in a taxable account, you can often use them to offset taxable gains in current or future tax years. However, doing so is subject to a variety of rules and restrictions. Consult with a tax planner as you proceed.
