    I have sold a stock with a capital loss. I plan to sell some with gains and re buy them. How long do I have to wait

    Sell the losers and wait 31 days before buying them back or your losses are not deductible. 


    If your capital loss is in a tax deferred account such as an IRA, there is no taxable loss realized.  Hence, you may buy the stock back any time.

    What country are you responsible for paying taxes to?
