I have a stock market share portfolio. I have received a summary of capital gain for the 2013 tax year. Do I declare this gain even though the gain is still in my portfolio & not in my pocket? The amount is not shown on the IT3b as is the interest & dividends.
You would receive an IT3c showing these gains or losses, did you receive one of them?

Document I received is headed "CGT summary for information purposes - local investments" which shows all the transactions & below states "Summary of local share transaction for your tax return" . Am I to assume that this is an IT3c?

Yes, that would be the correct document to use for any capital gains and losses. It will show you proceeds and base costs for the selling and cost prices.
