    Forex spot and forward contracts are IRC 988 foreign currency transactions. They are reported in summary form as ordinary gains or losses on line 21 of Form 1040 (Other Income or Loss). //np A trader or investor may elect out of IRC 988 for the more tax beneficial IRC 1256 with 60/40 tax treatment. //np Currency futures and options listed on U.S. commodities and futures exchanges are by default treated as 1256 contracts. They are reported on Form 6781, where they are split 60/40 before being moved over to Schedule D. Capital loss limitations of $3,000 per year apply.
