Time to Increase the Capital Loss Limitation

Clinton explores the topic of whether the current tax break limit for capital losses should be changed. He proposes that Congress increase the capital loss limitation in code section 1211 to $15,000 starting this year (versus the current $3,000 limit), retroactively and inflation adjusted thereafter. He explains how capital gains and losses are taxed, and the annual limit on the amount of capital loss that can be deducted. The distinction between short-term and long-term investments and the reasons behind the limit on losses are also discussed.
