2008 taxes **************
I have an extension till Oct 15th 2008 to file 2008 taxes.
I had a small business till July /Aug of last year. Bec of the economy
I had no business after Aug. So I decided to work full time on day trading in stocks. Though I made money initially, I lost more money in the end.
Can I write off my Stock trading losses against my other business profits ? and reduce my taxable income ?
Pls let me know.
