or Your total net loss as shown on line 16 of Schedule D (Form 1040). 2011 tax tables 1040ez   You can use your total net loss to reduce your income dollar for dollar, up to the $3,000 limit. 2011 tax tables 1040ez Capital loss carryover. 2011 tax tables 1040ez   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. 2011 tax tables 1040ez If part of the loss is still unused, you can carry it over to later years until it is completely used up. 2011 tax tables 1040ez   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. 2011 tax tables 1040ez   When you carry over a loss, it remains long term or short term. 2011 tax tables 1040ez 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. 2011 tax tables 1040ez Figuring your carryover. 2011 tax tables 1040ez   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. 2011 tax tables 1040ez   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). 2011 tax tables 1040ez    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. 2011 tax tables 1040ez Example. 2011 tax tables 1040ez Bob and Gloria sold securities in 2013. 2011 tax tables 1040ez The sales resulted in a capital loss of $7,000. 2011 tax tables 1040ez They had no other capital transactions. 2011 tax tables 1040ez Their taxable income was $26,000. 2011 tax tables 1040ez On their joint 2013 return, they can deduct $3,000. 2011 tax tables 1040ez The unused part of the loss, $4,000 ($7,000 − $3,000), can be carried over to 2014. 2011 tax tables 1040ez If their capital loss had been $2,000, their capital loss deduction would have been $2,000. 2011 tax tables 1040ez They would have no carryover. 2011 tax tables 1040ez Use short-term losses first. 2011 tax tables 1040ez   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. 2011 tax tables 1040ez 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. 2011 tax tables 1040ez Decedent's capital loss. 2011 tax tables 1040ez    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. 2011 tax tables 1040ez The capital loss limits discussed earlier still apply in this situation. 2011 tax tables 1040ez The decedent's estate cannot deduct any of the loss or carry it over to following years. 2011 tax tables 1040ez Joint and separate returns. 2011 tax tables 1040ez   If you and your spouse once filed separate returns and are now filing a joint return, combine your separate capital loss carryovers. 2011 tax tables 1040ez 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. 2011 tax tables 1040ez 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. 2011 tax tables 1040ez These lower rates are called the maximum capital gain rates. 2011 tax tables 1040ez 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. 2011 tax tables 1040ez For 2013, the maximum capital gain rates are 0%, 15%, 20%, 25%, and 28%. 2011 tax tables 1040ez See Table 16-1 for details. 2011 tax tables 1040ez 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. 2011 tax tables 1040ez Example. 2011 tax tables 1040ez All of your net capital gain is from selling collectibles, so the capital gain rate would be 28%. 2011 tax tables 1040ez If you are otherwise subject to a rate lower than 28%, the 28% rate does not apply. 2011 tax tables 1040ez Investment interest deducted. 2011 tax tables 1040ez   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. 2011 tax tables 1040ez 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. 2011 tax tables 1040ez This is done on the Schedule D Tax Worksheet or the Qualified Dividends and Capital Gain Tax Worksheet. 2011 tax tables 1040ez For more information about the limit on investment interest, see Interest Expenses in chapter 3 of Publication 550. 2011 tax tables 1040ez Table 16-1. 2011 tax tables 1040ez What Is Your Maximum Capital Gain Rate?

Health and Safety

Safety is a primary issue when you're recovering from a disaster. Follow these tips to help ensure your safety and cope with the disaster. If you aren't able to return home, states, tribes, localities, and the Red Cross continue to operate emergency shelters along the East Coast. Here's how to find shelter:

  • Stay informed about the federal public health response and recovery effort, food and water safety, preventing disease and injury, safe clean-up, sanitation, and mental health resources.
  • Monitor conditions in your area; find shelter; and let others know you are safe, with the Red Cross Hurricane App.
  • Download the FEMA app to find a map with open shelters and open FEMA Disaster Recovery Centers.
  • Call the Red Cross at 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
  • Search for shelters via text message: text: SHELTER and your ZIP code to 43362 (4FEMA). For example: Shelter 01234 (standard rates apply).
  • Check local news media outlets.

Responders: People working on clean-up and helping disaster survivors also need to be concerned about their health and safety. The Department of Labor offers technical assistance and resources to help protect the occupational safety and health of workers in disaster areas.

Cancer patients can have can have weakened immune systems and may be at higher risk for infections, bleeding, fatigue, and injury. Call 1-800-4-CANCER (1-800-422-6237) to learn where to receive care if a disaster event disrupts care or displaces patients.

Donate and Volunteer

Donate Blood caused the cancellation of hundreds of Red Cross blood drives, resulting in a shortage of blood and platelets.

Cash donations are very useful in situations where supplies must be acquired quickly. This is the most efficient way to make an impact with your donations. If you need help in determining who to give to, the National Voluntary Organization Active in Disaster website has a list of major nonprofits that are active in disaster work or you can make your offer through the National Donations Management Network.

Volunteer - Affiliate with existing non-profit organizations before going to the disaster area. Immediately following a disaster, a community can become easily overwhelmed by the amount of generous people who want to help. Contacting and affiliating with an established organization will help to ensure that you are appropriately trained to respond in the most effective way. Be patient: Recovery lasts a lot longer than the media attention. There will be volunteer needs for many months.
