"Request for Removal of Worthless Securities Form", send it to your broker, and they will issue a loss on your monthly statement for the amount that you've invested.
There is nothing to worry about with the IRS, as it is a total loss if you can't sell. If your stock does get a bid again someday, and you sell the stock for a gain, which you would since your new cost basis is zero if you requested your broker for a "WSF" and had them execute it, then you have to report that gain as income

The aforementioned is my opinion only and should not be considered professional advice, but rather a discussion only for information purposes.
I would strongly suggest that you contact an individual with a professional designation under law, such as CPA, CFP etc for matters regarding securities and taxation.
Best of luck.
