Adding stock loses to taxes

Personal Finance & Money Asked on January 6, 2022

In USA there is normally about 12k deduction for a single person filling taxes. If I have 1k losses in stocks can I take the 12k default deduction + 1k? I know there is a 3k limit to stock losses but I am not sure if I can combine the default 12k and the stock loss.

I think I have 2 options:

  1. Take the 12k deduction
  2. Have losses over 12k (not stocks) then I can add 1k stock loss.

Could someone explain?

One Answer

Losses are not part of itemized deductions. You can take the stock losses regardless of whether you itemize.
