Offset Capital Gains with Losses
Net capital losses are fully deductible against capital gains. If your capital losses exceed your capital gains, you can deduct up to $3,000 in net capital losses against ordinary income ($1,500 if married filing separately) or your total net loss as shown in 1040 Schedule D, Capital Gains and Losses, whichever is less. Any remaining capital losses may be carried over to future years.
