My only income is $717.00 a month from social security disability due to my being very ill...luckily I have paid off my house and cars before finding out I am sick. ..I do not have to file federal income tax due to my income is to low combined with the source of my income is soc sec disability... I now would like to trade stocks..but only maybe 4 trades per month (buying and then selling)..so this would be like 48 trades a year..now to my question I need help with..lets say over a year I made $15k and I now need to file federal income tax I imagine?...how would I list my trades and how do I keep track of each buy and then sell?..Do I need to list each buy and sell on the federal tax form? Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
