Taxing my patience

I finished my taxes nearly 6 weeks ago, but I hadn't mailed them out yet because I owe money.  Good thing, since today I received some new paperwork.  Apparently there was some "long-term capital loss carryover" from my inheritance that I have to account for.  I'm not sure, but I think that means a possible reduction in my taxes.  That's a good thing, though it also means redoing most of my paperwork.

EDIT:  WOOHOO!  I owe nothing at all now on my taxes!

Sounds familiar. ;-) I've had a 6-figure capital loss carryover on my taxes every year since 1990. It's one of the reasons I need a preparer, because the amount decreases every year according to some arcane formula that's beyond my layman's ken...

Hmmm. Lucky you. It's never reduced my tax liability to that extent. All it's allowed me to do is to deduct another $3,000 from my adjusted gross income...
