Beware of the Wash Sale Rules
November 9, 2012
If you sell a security before the end of 2012 to take advantage of a capital loss, be aware of the wash sale rules. To make sure the loss is deductible, refrain from buying the same security or a substantially identical security during the 61-day period that begins 30 days before you sell and ends 30 days after.
