You'd report this exactly like any other stock sale, profit or loss.  You use the "Stocks, Mutual Funds, Bonds, Other" interview and you enter the information required:

  • Description of what was sold
  • Date of sale
  • Proceeds
  • Date of acquisition
  • Cost basis

In your case the Proceeds number is going to be smaller than the Cost basis number, generating a loss.
