30-Day Wash Sale Rule

30-Day Wash Sale Rule Definition

IRS rule that prohibits a capital loss to be realized for tax benefits on a security when an equivalent security is purchased thirty days or less, before or after the security is sold. In other words, a security that was sold for a loss cannot be repurchased within 30 days before or after its sale without losing the tax deduction.
