I have a small long term gain of $1000 this year, and I'm thinking about selling some of my losers to offset it.
I have some long term losses and some short term losses that I could take (and then wait 30 days to buy back those stocks to avoid the wash sale).
I also seem to remember I might have some carry over losses from prior years (but I'd have to check with my tax guy. I'm not even sure how I'd figure this out. I guess I should have been keeping track somewhere).
How much money would I actually save by doing this? (i.e. is it worth the hassle)
